Gifts of Securities or Stock

By participating in planned giving, I-CARES can count on your continued support to bring together key stakeholders (researchers, students, community partners, policymakers, and industry) for years to come. Planned gifts such as estate gifts, charitable trusts, life income gifts, gifts of real estate, and bequests could make it possible for you to make a larger gift than you might expect. All gifts to I-CARES are fully tax-deductible for federal income tax purposes, and subject to any limitations placed on charitable gifts.
