Gifts of Stock

When making a gift of appreciated stock, bonds or stock options, you pay no tax on the capital gains, and you can earn a charitable deduction for the fair-market value of the contribution up to a 30 percent limit of your adjusted gross income. Any excess deduction can be carried over for up to five years. If you sell appreciated stock to make a gift to the University, you will have to pay tax on the capital gains. If stock is held in a brokerage account, the stock may simply be transferred.

If you physically hold the shares, the University needs to receive the stock certificate and a stock power. This stock power must include a guaranteed signature and should, for security reasons, be sent in a separate envelope from the actual certificate. Both items should be sent to Salve Regina University, Office of Advancement, Attn: Katherine Horoschak, 100 Ochre Point Ave., Newport, RI 02840. For questions on contributing stock certificates, contact Katherine Horoschak at (401) 341-2438.

Please note: Gifts of securities are credited at market value on the date the University gains control of the assets.

Matching Gifts

Return the form to Salve Regina University, Office of Advancement, 100 Ochre Point Ave., Newport, RI 02840. If you have any questions, call Nancy Peresta, associate director, at (401) 341-2341.

Foundation Relations

The grants office strives to build partnerships between the University and philanthropic foundations, government funding agencies and the business community. The goal is to support and encourage faculty and institutional grant-seeking activities at Salve Regina, while helping to develop positive relationships with external funding organizations.

The grants office works with administrators, faculty and staff from across campus to identify funding opportunities that have the potential to support institutional priorities and develop proposals that contribute to the growth of academic programs.
