Giving publicly traded stock could be a tax-wise way to support UNLV. For appreciated securities held longer than one year, you may be able to deduct their full fair market value, regardless of what you originally paid for them. You also may avoid paying capital gains tax. If you are interested in making a gift of securities to UNLV, please contact Tiffany Vickers, Senior Associate Vice President, Finance & Administration and CFO at 702-895-3641 or
