What to Give

The simplest way to support CMU is through cash gifts. But creative gifts of assets can include stocks, bonds, and property (real estate and personal property such as artwork). These can not only provide you with charitable deductions, but often offer additional tax savings as well.

Choose the category of assets below that best fits your situation.
