Stock gifts

Your gift of appreciated stock helps you support Marist's mission and possibly provide a significant tax savings at the same time. You receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift and avoid paying any capital gains tax on the increase in value of the stock.  For instructions on how to transfer stock to Marist, please contact the Director of Advancement Services in the Office of College Advancement at (845) 575-3447.

Matching gifts

Many corporations sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made to higher education by their employees. Matching gift programs provide employees the opportunity to double, triple or quadruple the value of their gift to the college.  Find out if your employer has a matching gift policy. If your employer does match gifts to higher education, please contact your Human Resource department for information or the necessary matching gift form.

Planned giving

A planned gift made through a will or trust to Marist is a gift that can help ensure the long term financial stability of Marist while providing you with the opportunity to become part of Marist's future. We would like to help you consider this kind of gift while planning for your financial future. All gifts are administered in strict compliance with the wishes of the donor. Please consult your tax advisor when considering this kind of gift. More information on planned giving is available at Planned Giving or by calling the College's Planned Giving Officer at (845)-575-3942 or e-mail Joan.Gambeski@marist.edu.
