Monetary Gifts To Kuhn
Make a Gift in Honor or Memory
There is no finer way to honor the life of a loved one than to request that donations be made to Kuhn Employment Opportunities, Inc. in their name. Whether it is designated to a particular program, the Friends of Kuhn Foundation, or to purchase needed materials, we will be pleased to discuss the various possibilities with you.
Gifts of Appreciated Stock
Kuhn welcomes gifts of appreciated stock as well as from the many other avenues for planned and deferred gift giving. Kuhn is assisted with gifts of this nature by volunteer board member John Zazzaro of Merrill Lynch. John noted that there are several benefits to making gifts of Appreciated Stock. While people may not feel that they are in a position to provide an outright cash gift, a gift of stock does not disrupt a donor's lifestyle. In this stock market people have greater appreciated gifts. Appreciated Stock is subject to capital gains tax if cashed by an individual, while a nonprofit is not subject to capital gains receiving maximum value of the stock. Any number of shares, especially in the current appreciated market, is a wonderful gift to Kuhn.
Stocks held by your broker or agent may be transferred electronically. Notify them of your intentions and have them call Kuhn for disposition instructions. Or you may send certificates without endorsement; send an endorsed stock power under separate cover to:
Kuhn Employment Opportunities, Inc.
Attn. Beth Fisher, Executive Director
P.O. Box 941
Meriden, CT 06450-0941
Transferring shares directly to Kuhn may enable you to avoid capital gains tax liability. We encourage you to contract your own advisor with any tax questions. The Friends of Kuhn Foundation, was established to receive just such gifts by providing a long term protected vehicle to benefit Kuhn Employment Opportunities, Inc.
