Consider a Year End Gift to Burgundy
Thanks to all who have already supported Burgundy’s Annual Giving fund this year! As we approach the end of the year, we hope you will consider a tax-deductible gift. Donations may be made in cash or by check or credit card. You're welcome to give in person or by mail, but the easiest way is to give online (credit card only). Donors may pledge at any time and pay the pledge by the end of the fiscal year, which is June 30.
Gifting stock instead of cash is a great way to give a gift and manage tax gains. If you gift a highly appreciated stock, the gain transfers to the school. You could then choose to replace the stock using the money you would have given as a donation. The result is you still have the stock holding, you have avoided taking a gain on the stock to raise cash and, most importantly, you have given a nice gift to Burgundy!
You may be able to increase your impact—see if your employer participates in a matching gift program.
You can donate to Burgundy through the United Way (#8380) or the Combined Federal Campaign (#15325, through January 12). Please don’t forget to submit your paperwork to Michele at email@example.com.
