Gifts of Assets
Gifts of Stock and Other Assets
One way to make a big impact at Seattle Central is by giving is via a gift of stock or other securities, like bonds or mutual funds. You are able to take a tax deduction for the value of the stock on the day it was sold.
Land, buildings and homes may be donated with positive tax implications. Real estate donations can be made immediately or through your will or living trust.
For more information on giving a gift of assets, stocks or other securities, please contact Executive Director, Lauren Guzauskas at Lauren.Guzauskas@seattlecolleges.edu.
Non-monetary or “in-kind” gifts allow the college to provide better opportunities to our students. Donors of gifts in-kind can generally receive a tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the property at the time of the contribution.
Gifts for ProgramsWe often welcome in-kind donations for educational purposes at the college. These gifts help our diverse programs keep pace with changing technology and equipment needs to provide innovative training opportunities to our students. For more information on donating property for educational use, please contact Lauren Guzauskas at Lauren.Guzakas@seattlecentral.edu.
Gifts for our Believe Gala
Each May, we rely on our community partners to donate items and experiences that will interest guests at our annual Believe auction. Donating an auction item shows your support for keeping quality education accessible and affordable to all Seattle residents. You will also receive marketing benefits including name recognition and item placement in our auction display
