Gift Planning

Gifts of Appreciated Securities

gifts-of-appreciated-securities.png

How It Works

  1. You can send unendorsed stock certificates by registered mail or instruct your broker to make the transfer from your account to our account
  2. You receive an income-tax deduction
  3. Colgate may keep or sell the securities

Benefits

  • You receive a federal income-tax deduction for the full fair-market value of the securities
  • You avoid long-term capital-gain tax on any appreciation in the value of the stock
  • Your gift will support Colgate as you designate

Special note: You should call or e-mail us to tell us of your intent, and we will be able to assist you with the details of the transfer.

The discussion herein is general in nature and may not apply to all individuals. Prospective donors are urged to consult their personal tax and financial advisors concerning the specific consequences of making gifts to Colgate. We would be pleased to discuss, in confidence, ways in which you may support Colgate. These measures may also have an impact on your estate planning.
