An easy way to fund an endowment is through a gift of securities. A gift of appreciated securities to Gannon is a popular alternative to a cash gift because it actually saves taxes twice. You not only receive an income tax deduction for the full market value of your securities, but you also avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciation.
