Tis the Season for Giving!

Flowers at Douglass Day

Give the gift of a Douglass education to celebrate the season! Your gift to Douglass by the end of the year can provide life-long impact for talented students. As 2023 comes to a close, consider supporting Douglass with worthwhile year-end giving strategies. Read more about ways to give to Douglass!

Give appreciated stock or donate from your IRA:

Donating appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy and tax-effective way for you to make a gift in support of the Douglass mission. In doing so, you will receive a charitable deduction and avoid paying capital gains tax. Learn the benefits of donating stock before year’s end.

An IRA charitable rollover may help reduce your taxable income and satisfy your required minimum distribution for the year. For those eligible, it is the most tax-wise way to make a charitable gift. Use our online resource to get started on your gift to support Douglass students.!

Check out our new stock and IRA tool through FreeWill. Using this easy-to-use tool, give the gift of stock or (if you’re 70.5 or older) give from your IRA.
