Matching Gifts

To maximize the benefit of your contribution to the Institute, we offer this searchable database of employers that offer a matching gift program to employees.

Gifts of Securities

You can make your gift to the Institute by contributing appreciated assets such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds or real estate. Your tax advantages are maximized if you donate appreciated assets that you’ve owned for more than one year. You obtain an income tax charitable gift deduction for the full current market value of the asset, and you avoid the capital gains tax that you would have paid if you sold the asset outright. For more information, call the Office of Development at 212-992-5869.
