Gifts of Securities

Make a gift to Northwest Public Television by transferring appreciated securities instead of writing a check! By doing so, you may avoid the tax due on the capital gain AND you may receive an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the security. For example, if you give stock with a fair market value of $1,000 for which you paid only $100, the "cost" to you for making the gift is only $100 plus, you may be able to deduct the full $1000 from your income tax, thereby reducing your "cost" even further.

Northwest Public Television is owned and operated by Washington State University and accepts gifts through the 501(c)(3) of the Washington State University Foundation. To donate stocks that are held in your brokerage account (at your brokerage house), simply provide your financial advisor with the following information of WSU Foundation's preferred broker:
