An Example of How It Works

John and his mother smiling When John's mother passed away, he knew he wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for her. He remembered that during her lifetime she was always praising OHSU and Doernbecher for its tireless efforts to better the community.

John decided to make a gift to OHSU and Doernbecher in his mother's name using appreciated securities. Not only will his mother's legacy live on at OHSU and Doernbecher thanks to the gift, but John also qualified for a federal income tax charitable deduction and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
