Carrollton accepts gifts-in-kind if they can be used in support of the mission of the school. Such gifts might take the form of inventory given through businesses owned by donors. In-kind gifts must adhere to the In-Kind Gift Policy (located under "downloads" on this page), and donors are required to sign an In-Kind Gift Agreement (located under "downloads" on this page)
Does your employer match gifts? Many companies have a matching gift program that can double, and, in some cases, triple the value of your gift. Please check with your company's Human Resources Department. The matching gift must be initiated by you once you have contributed to Carrollton. When Carrollton receives the paperwork from your employer, the school can verify that your gift was made and complete the necessary documentation. Contact Amy Repine, email@example.com for more details.
A residence, vacation home, farm, acreage, or vacant lot may have so appreciated in value through the years that its sale would mean a sizable capital gains tax. By making a year-end gift of this property instead, a donor would avoid the capital gains tax and, at the same time, receive a charitable deduction for the fair market value of the property.
Making a gift of securities is both simple and tax efficient. Gifts of appreciated stock may allow a donor to avoid a capital gains tax in addition to receiving a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the stock. To initiate a gift of stock, please contact Amy Repine at firstname.lastname@example.org. If the transfer has been made, please notify the Institutional Advancement Office of the gift, (305) 446-5673, ext. 1278, and send a copy of the completed form when the transfer is made with your broker.
