Donating appreciated securities such as stocks or mutual funds is a smart and easy way to support Centre College’s Norton Center for the Arts. Just as with cash gifts, you will receive a federal income tax donation for the full market value of any securities you donate as long as you have owned them for at least one year. You may also avoid the capital gains taxes you would owe if you sold these securities.


Planned giving enables you to arrange charitable contributions in various ways that allow you to fulfill your philanthropic goals, often providing lifetime monetary benefits to the donor, along with considerable tax savings. Centre College’s Norton Center can accept the following planned gifts:

  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Bequests
  • Life Insurance Gifts
  • Gifts of Appreciated Property
  • Gifts of Real Estate
  • Charitable Lead Trust

For more information on planned giving and gifts of stock, please contact Mandy Prather, Director of Marketing & Development at 859-238-6688 or email us.

Centre College’s Norton Center for the Arts is a non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
