How to Make a Planned Gift

You can leave a lasting legacy for GCD through a will, living trust or retirement plan. The

process is very simple and your gift benefits the college for generations to come. With

careful planning, it may be possible to reduce or eliminate income taxes (including capital

gains) and transfer taxes (including gift, estate, inheritance and generation-skipping).

Consult your personal financial professional to see if you may be able to enjoy tax savings

while turning appreciated assets into an income for yourself and others. Call GCD’s

Development Director at (910) 221-2224 to discuss planned giving.

How to Transfer Securities

There may be significant tax advantages from contributing appreciated securities

transferred to the college as a charitable gift. The value of your gift depends upon the

market price of these assets when they are given. If you have held securities for more

than one year, you may find that your gift will provide a twofold tax benefit, creating an

income-tax deduction as well as helping avoid the capital-gains tax upon sale. These gifts

require special planning and consultation with your professional financial advisor and

Grace College of Divinity. Call our Director of Development at (910) 221-2224 to make a

gift of appreciated securities, stocks and bonds.
