There are three ways to donate.
1. Make check payable and mail to:
Beta Omicron House Corporation
160 Dandt Road
Custer, MI 49405
The address above is the address of House Corporation Treasurer Terry Carter, 231-757-9039. [email protected]
2. Donate securities:
This option can be of advantage to an alumnus who may wish to donate securities rather than cash. If the alumnus donates “appreciated securities,” he can avoid capital gains tax that he would ordinarily have to pay. He has the advantage of completing his pledge with “discounted dollars”. Only readily marketable securities in good market order can be used.
Brother Tom Bledsoe (872, 4/72) has been employed as a financial advisor with Raymond James & Associates, Inc. for three decades. The House Corporation has appointed Tom and the Raymond James company to accept donations of securities for processing so the proceeds go to the House Corporation treasury. Donations have already come to the House Corporation in this manner.
To inquire about this donation process for securities, contact Tom Bledsoe at his office: 260-497-7711. Email: [email protected]
With the stock market at an all-time high, this may be an appropriate option for you. Donating a hundred or more shares of stock, may be your best way to save taxes.
Talk to Tom.
