Gifts of appreciated securities, stocks, and bonds also provide considerable tax advantages when transferred to CDU before they are sold. If you have held your 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 that would have been due on their sale. If you wish to transfer stock or other marketable securities, please contact Annie Hager (
