Gifts of Stock

 

You may now contribute Gifts of Stock to the Glenview Education Foundation.

 

Gifts of long-term capital-gain property to the Glenview Education Foundation can offer substantial benefits to GEF and to you the donor. From your standpoint, gifting of appreciated securities allows you to support GEF with a donation at current market value (mean of trading low and high on the date of the gift), without having to pay capital gains tax on the long-term capital appreciation. This represents a beneficial consideration in tax planning strategies.

 

Your employer may also match the value of your in-kind gift to GEF with a cash donation maximizing the impact of your contribution.

 

 

Method 1

If you currently have the stock in an account with a brokerage firm, your stock gift can be transferred electronically into GEF's account. You will simply give your broker a signed letter of instruction to deliver the stock (name and number of shares) to GEF via "free delivery through DTC." Fax, email, or mail a copy of your letter to GEF. GEF needs written confirmation of the transfer from your broker before we can issue a gift receipt. Your broker will require two pieces of information to complete the delivery: 

  1. GEF account is held by Linsco/Private Ledger/Glenview State Bank. LPL/Glenview State Bank DTC number is 0075.

  2. The contact at Glenview State bank is Bob Rosin, 847-832-0918. Please contact him for additional information, including the account number for GEF. GEF's Tax Id number is 36-3789505.

 

Method 2

If you hold a physical stock certificate and want to gift that stock to GEF, you will need to provide three things to GEF to complete the gift transaction:

  1. The unsigned stock certificate. Leave the certificate unsigned, nonnegotiable.

  2. A cover letter. With the stock certificate, please send a cover letter including your name, address, name of the stock, number of shares, certificate number(s). 

  3. In a separate envelope, send a stock power for each stock certificate. This is a form you will sign that will later be attached to the stock certificate to make it negotiable. Stock powers are available from brokerage firms or banks.

Matching Programs

 

We are trying to increase the impact your donation makes to GEF by ensuring that everyone checks with their employers for matching opportunities.  

 

It is so easy to do: 

Employee Matching Gifts are donations an employer makes to match its employees' charitable contributions.  Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees.

 

Check if your employer will match your donation.

If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it back to your employer. We will do the rest! The impact of your gift to GEF may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

 

DID YOU KNOW?  Employee matching gifts often are dollar-for-dollar, but some companies will give double or even triple the original donation.  Also, if both spouses have employers that match, you BOTH can submit your donations to each of your employers.

 

IT’S SO EASY! 

 

If you have any questions, please contact me directly at beitzel@mac.com and I can help you.
