    Endowment Account

    An endowment account at Merrill Lynch has been established for the purpose of accepting donations of stock, bonds, or other mutual fund holdings from individuals who would like to use this method to support the Foundation for Professional Ergonomics.   

    • This type of donation allows tax deductibility of the funds with the advantage of a direct transfer from the individual’s account/brokerage firm without having to sell the funds (thus eliminating any taxable event for those donating).  

    • If you make a donation of stock, you do not pay any tax on the increase of the value of the stock from the time you acquired it (capital gains) and the entire current value of the stock is tax deductible.  

    • As a 501(c)(3) organization, the Foundation can sell stock without paying any capital gains.   See example below.
