Every donation, whether it is $25 or $25,000, makes a difference and is an annual endorsement in all Porter-Gaud stands for and all it can become!

If you hold securities which would result in a long-term capital gain if sold, you can make an outright gift to Porter-Gaud and realize substantial savings on capital gains tax on the appreciation. Thus, the actual cost to you as a donor is often far less than the value of your gift to the school. It is recommended that you consult with your tax advisor to discuss the latest IRS rules and regulations. Please contact Traci Miller, Advancement Services Manager, at tmiller@portergaud.edu or 843.402.4803 to arrange a securities/stock transfer. You can download the information here.

Personal Property

A gift of real estate, artwork, or other appreciated property will most likely result in significant capital gains tax savings to the donor. Please call Craig Stewart at (843) 402-4690 for further information.
