Gifts of Stock

Making a gift of securities is simple and offers several additional tax advantages. Please contact the Pasteur Foundation to discuss the best way in which to donate your securities. To make a transfer, the Foundation will need the name of the donor’s brokerage firm, stock name, number of shares, transfer date, and purpose of gift so that the donor can be assured of receiving credit for the gift.

Bequests

Whether you wish to memorialize a loved one, provide financial support for qualified students, or fund specific research, a bequest can achieve your goals as you become a member of the Pasteur Society. Please call the Pasteur Foundation, or direct your legal counsel to do so. The Foundation can provide various wording options to help a donor achieve their goals.

Gifts-in-kind are generally defined as non-cash donations, other than real or personal property, or materials that usually come from companies, corporations or vendors. The Pasteur Foundation accepts some gifts-in-kind, such as notable books, artwork, and other assets.
