What You Can Give

Learn which assets are most commonly used to fund a gift.

Stocks & Bonds

Giving appreciated stock that you have owned for more than one year is one of the most tax-advantaged ways to make charitable gifts. With careful planning, you can convert your securities into a lifetime income stream, avoid or defer your capital gains tax, all while supporting Pomona College.

Real Estate

A gift of real estate allows you to preserve your cash assets, avoid or defer capital gains tax, receive other tax and income advantages, and make a significant charitable gift to Pomona.

Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make an outright or legacy gift. A gift of these assets can shield your heirs from taxes while funding Pomona's future.

Life Insurance

Life insurance is a valuable asset for making an outright charitable gift during your lifetime. You can make a gift of a life insurance policy without diminishing other investments or assets earmarked for family members.

Personal Property

An outright gift of artwork, coins, antiques, or other personal property can be an excellent way to support Pomona.

Donor-Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund can provide you with immediate tax benefits while making your charitable giving easier for years to come. Might a donor-advised fund be right for you? Here’s how it works.
