Gifts of Securities/Stock

Gifts of publicly traded securities that have appreciated in value allow you to avoid capital gains taxes while also receiving a tax deduction for your gift.* Northwestern University benefits by selling the stock without paying taxes on the gain, and you benefit from making a contribution that would be larger than what you might have been able to donate in cash. You can specify which area of Northwestern you would like the proceeds to support, or have them contributed to the annual fund.

To make a gift of securities to Northwestern, please use the information below or complete the Gift of Stock Form. Please specify Kellogg as the gift allocation.
