Gifts of Stock or IRA

There are a variety of ways to make a charitable gift, which may provide tax advantages for you. Please consult your adviser for your best giving option(s). Below are a few recommendations for consideration.

Stock
Donating appreciated securities is a great way for you to make a gift to WFSU. You can deduct the full present fair market value and you owe no tax on the appreciation in value. To make a stock gift to WFSU, you will need to give the following information to your broker or fill out WFSU's Securities Form:

Raymond James & Associates
DTC #0725
Account of FSU Foundation, Inc for the benefit of WFSU
Account # 10194903
Attn: Henry Hooks and Brenda Joyner
850-785-9614

Please also contact Troy Davis at 850-645-6065 or tedavis@fsu.edu with your name, type of stock and the number of shares so we can provide documentation for your tax deduction.

IRA Distributions
At age 70 ½, IRA owners are required by law to take mandatory minimum distributions. An increasingly popular way to make gifts tax-free, transfers to WFSU must be made directly from the IRA or by writing a check from the IRA up to a $100,000 limit. Now that the IRA Charitable Rollover legislation is passed permanently, this enables donors to plan each year in advance. To make an IRA gift to WFSU, you will need to give the following information to your broker or fill out WFSU's IRA Form:
