Stocks and Bonds
Wake Tech Foundation welcomes gifts of stocks and bonds; our policies state that such gifts must be sold as soon as possible after we receive them. Donations of appreciated stocks or bonds can benefit donors (individuals and corporations), as they may deduct the full market value of appreciated stocks without paying capital gains taxes on the appreciated value.
Many companies match the charitable contributions their employees make – doubling the value of each gift! Check with your company’s HR department to find out if they offer a matching gifts program OR check our Match Finder.
Gifts of real estate can be an excellent way to make a large gift to the college while enjoying significant tax benefits. Gifts of real estate are typically made as outright gifts or part gift/part sale (also known as a bargain sale) but can also be made as the resource for a charitable remainder trust or retained life estates. Wake Tech Foundation accepts donations of these properties, among others: residence, vacation home, farm, commercial building, undeveloped land.
A facility named in your honor – or in honor or memory of a friend, relative, teacher, or other special person –can serve as a lasting tribute. For corporations, naming rights provide a way to show commitment to the college and reach those who use college facilities and services. Wake Tech Foundation offers a variety of naming opportunities, from classrooms, laboratories, and auditoriums to buildings, learning centers, and entire campuses.
