Portland Community College Foundation

When you transfer securities to the PCC Foundation, we sell them and use the proceeds for scholarship or program support.

Giving securities is beneficial to you because you:

  • Receive gift credit and an immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, no matter what you originally paid for them.
  • Pay no capital gains tax on the securities you donate.
  • Can direct your gift to a specific scholarship or program fund.
  • Have the satisfaction of making a significant gift now or using your securities for a planned gift that will benefit PCC students later.
