Gifts of Securities
Giving stocks and bonds that have increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year can provide even greater tax benefits than giving cash. Not only is the market value of the securities tax-deductible, but you also avoid paying the capital gains tax on the appreciation. Stock held in custody with a brokerage firm or bank trust department can be transferred directly from the custodian firm or bank to Maryville College's account at First Tennessee Bank. View details on how to transfer securities to MC.
Gifts of Real Estate
A gift of real estate to Maryville College provides a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the gift - up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income if you have held the property for more than six months - with the usual five-year carryover.
Gifts of Personal Property
Donations of artwork, books, equipment, collections, antiques, and other personal property may be given to Maryville College. Before making a gift of personal property, please consult with Maryville College to confirm that your gift can be used according to your wishes while also supporting the mission of the College.

Gifts of Life Insurance
Life insurance can be an attractive way to make a substantial deferred gift to Maryville College. You may choose to donate a paid-up policy that is no longer needed. Or you may create a new policy with MC as owner and beneficiary, in which case the charitable deduction is for the policy's cash surrender value or net premium paid on the policy, whichever is less. Or you may give a policy that is not fully paid up and take a deduction for the present value of the policy. Any subsequent premium payments will be fully deductible as charitable contributions.
Gifts with Life Income
Gifts that return income to the donor are excellent vehicles for retirement and overall financial planning. Learn more about charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities.
