Property, Planned Gifts and Securities

Gifts of personal property include capital assets, such as art objects, rare books, or equipment. These can be given to the college for educational purposes. Responsibility for appraisal rests with the donor. Elms College has discretion to sell or retain the items.

Donors may also consider giving real estate. Real estate can be given to the college outright or transferred in a bargain sale, upon discussion, review, and approval of the transaction. Some donors may be eligible to contribute real estate to the college and reserve the right to occupy the property in their lifetime. Please contact Bernadette Nowakowski at 413-265-2214 or nowakowskib@elms.edu to discuss details and learn more about planned gifts.

Securities may include stocks, mutual funds, or bonds. Donations are credited at fair market value on the date of transfer to the college.  Please contact Liz Rich at 413-265-2403 or riche@elms.edu.
