Gift Matching & Securities

Gift Matching

Many companies give generously to the non-profit institutions that their employees support. By matching employee gifts, businesses are assured that their charitable resources are supporting causes that are important to their employees and their communities. If you, or your spouse, work for a participating company, you can double or triple your gift to Albertus. All you need to do is contact your (or your spouse's) human resources department to obtain instructions for requesting matching gifts.

Gifts of Securities

By making a gift of appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares, you can support Albertus and potentially become eligible for an income tax deduction. Gifts of Securities is a popular way of supporting Albertus. By donating securities that have increased in value, you may be eligible for a tax deduction at full value (if owned for longer than one year) and also avoid paying capital gains tax. (Please contact your tax professional for details.)
