Making a gift of stocks is simple and offers a number of valuable financial benefits:
- Produces a current tax deduction equal to fair-market value of the stock
- Corporation may redeem shares of the stock from your organization
- Could reduce liability for accumulated earnings tax
Step 1: Complete Transfer. If the shares are held at a securities firm or other brokerage account, please contact Seminary of the Southwest to receive the necessary account information and required identification numbers.
Step 2: Your securities firm will not alert us of your transfer. To ensure that your gift is appropriately credited, please email or call us directly to notify us of your gift at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Not everyone wants to commit to making a gift in their wills or estates. Some prefer the increased flexibility that a beneficiary designation provides by using:
- IRAs and retirement plans
- Life insurance policies
- Commercial annuities
It only takes three simple steps to make this type of gift. Here’s how to name the Seminary of the Southwest as a beneficiary:
- Contact your retirement plan administrator, insurance company, bank or financial institution for a change-of-beneficiary form.
- Decide what percentage (1 to 100) you would like us to receive and name us, along with the percentage you chose, on the beneficiary form.
- Return the completed form to your plan administrator, insurance company, bank or financial institution.
