Establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday. Your gift will serve as a lasting tribute while supporting KCU.
Scenario: Sarah Reader
When Sarah's father, alumnus Dr. Harry Reader, passed away she knew that she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always grateful to KCU for allowing him to fulfill his dream of becoming an osteopathic physician. Sarah decided to make a gift to KCU in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at KCU thanks to the gift and a commemorative plaque, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
