Gifts of Stock
Give a gift of stock
A gift of long-term, appreciated securities (stock, bonds, or mutual fund shares) allows you to claim the full fair market value of the stock as a tax deduction. Often, you can also avoid paying capital gains tax. You may also choose to sell stock that has lost value and donate the proceeds from the sale. You can then deduct the capital loss, as well as the amount of the sale of the stock. For more information, please contact Adam Wade, Director of Development, at 770-606-5713, or email@example.com.
Leave a legacy
Since opening in 2009, Tellus Science Museum has brought world-class science education to families throughout the Southeast. Without any state or local funding, the Museum relies solely on our membership and the generosity of individuals, foundations, and corporations for support. By remembering Tellus in your estate or financial plans, you will make a lasting difference on the Museum. It also helps further your financial goals and helps future generations better understand the role of science in our world. To make an impact on future generations of Tellus visitors through planned giving, contact Adam Wade, Director of Development, at 770-606-5713, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
