Gifts of stock
Another way you can give to Gallaudet is a gift of stock. By doing this, you will be eligible to benefit from tax deductions on the capital gains. In order for Gallaudet to accept a gift of stock, it must be made through a broker; the broker must contact Merrill Lynch and inform them to transfer the shares to Gallaudet University.

Your gift may be doubled—or increased even more—if you work for a company with a matching gift program. Spouse and retiree gifts may also be matched. Please ask your employer for details.
Many companies and businesses offer their employees the opportunity to support their organization of choice through payroll deductions. Please check with your employer's Human Resources or Payroll Office to see if this option is available to you.
Gallaudet gratefully accepts pledges; however, a pledge to make a gift may not be deducted for tax purposes until the year in which the actual payment is made.
A gift through your will can provide significant support to Gallaudet and may benefit your estate at the same time. Any assets, including cash, securities, and real estate may be transferred to Gallaudet through a bequest made by a will or a trust.
