Gifts of Business Interests
Closely held stock
How it works
You give shares of closely-held stock to the University of Pittsburgh.
The University of Pittsburgh offers the stock back to your company for redemption or re-purchase and uses the proceeds for its programs.
- You receive gift credit and an immediate income tax deduction for the appraised value of your shares, even if their original value was close to zero.
- You pay no capital gains tax on any appreciation that has taken place in the shares.
- Under certain conditions, you may be able to use closely-held shares to fund a life-income arrangement, such as a FLIP Unitrust.
- You can have the satisfaction of making a significant gift that benefits both you and the University of Pittsburgh during your lifetime.
