Gifts and Pledges from Individuals

Gifts of cash or cash equivalents can either be paid outright in a single installment or as a pledge to be fulfilled over a period of several years. A cash gift may entitle the donor to a charitable deduction of up to 50 percent of adjusted gross income annually, with a carry-over provision of up to five years should the value of the gift exceed 50 percent of the individual donor’s adjusted gross income.

Gifts of appreciated securities (stocks and bonds) offer donors a range of potential benefits such as the avoidance of capital gains taxes when the securities have been held long-term—that is, for more than one year. Such gifts are deductible up to 30 percent of adjusted gross income annually, with a carry-over provision of up to five years should the value of the gift exceed 30 percent of the donor’s adjusted gross income.

The Annual Giving program each year attracts thousands of unrestricted, current use gifts that can be directed to meet challenges and opportunities as they arise. Through their annual contributions, donors provide the Center with the solid and reliable financial base it needs to move ahead aggressively on multiple fronts. To encourage donors to be as generous as they can, Memorial Sloan Kettering offers the “Partners for Excellence” program, which offers a range of incentives to donors who make contributions to the Strategic Initiatives Fund at various giving levels beginning at $1,000:

Associate Level:   $1,000 to $4,999
Sponsor Level:   $5,000 to $9,999
Leader Level:   $10,000 to $24,999
Patron Level:   $25,000 and above
