Using securities that have gone up in value since you bought them is an excellent way to make a gift to Michigan Radio. In most cases you will be entitled to an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift and will not have to report capital gain income.

You can even use securities to make your annual gift to the station.

Michigan Radio is part of the University of Michigan, and the DTC instructions  for transfer of stock to the university’s broker, Bank of New York Mellon, are:

Before a transfer of stock is made, we ask that you please notify us with the name of stock and number of shares gifted so we can monitor our account for the expected transfer.
