Giving Stock

Giving stock that has appreciated and you have held for at least one year can be one of the smartest ways to make a gift. You not only obtain a deduction for the full-fair market value of the stock (typically calculated as the average of the high and the low on the day the stock leaves your control), you also avoid paying tax on the capital gain.

(Where a stock has depreciated in value, selling the stock and contributing the proceeds may be more advisable, particularly if you can use the loss to offset other gains.)

The objective is to transfer the shares to Harvey Mudd College rather than sell the shares and forward us the proceeds. The transfer process varies slightly depending on whether or not the stock certificates are in your possession.

Give Real Estate

Your property opens the door to a creative and beneficial giving opportunity. Learn more on our planned giving website.

Planned Gifts

Planned giving information, including gifts of real estate, life income gifts, etc., may be found on our planned giving website.

In-kind Gifts

In addition to gifts and pledges of cash or other appreciated assets, there may be opportunities to contribute in-kind gifts to the college, such as a piece of research or machining equipment directly helpful to the college’s mission of hands-on education and research.

All in-kind gifts must be given unconditionally and are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. The College does not generally accept gifts of art or vehicles, and gifts of property valued at more than $5000 must be supported by a formal appraisal to qualify for a tax deduction. Harvey Mudd does not provide nor pay for such appraisals.

Corporations interested in contributing scientific research or engineering equipment should contact Barry Olsan, director of corporate relations at barry_olsan@hmc.edu or 909.607.7015.

Individuals should contact Christine Harrison, assistant director of advancement services at charrison@hmc.edu or 909.607.3167.
