  • Giving to Champlain through your donor-advised fund is now seamless. DAF Direct allows you to give directly from your donor-advised fund.

  • Gifts of stock or appreciated securities have the double benefit of providing an immediate tax deduction for the full market value of the stocks as well as avoiding capital gains taxes. For income tax purposes the value of such a gift may be deducted up to 30% of adjusted gross income (AGI), with an additional five-year carry over rule.

    When Champlain College receives a stock gift, we sell the stock and place the funds into our account in order for it to be put to immediate use for College programs. It is important that you not sell the securities in your name, as you would then be liable for capital gains taxes.

    How to Make a Gift of Stock

    When Champlain College receives a stock gift, we sell the stock as soon as we receive it into our account to put it to immediate use for College programs. It is important that you not sell the securities in your name; as you would then be liable for capital gains taxes. Here are the steps that you should use:

    • If the stock is held in “street name” at a brokerage firm or bank other than Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, contact your representative to authorize the firm to transfer the shares to:
      Account # 383-111854-042
      DTC #0015
      For the account of: Champlain College
    • If the stock is held in a MORGAN STANLEY SMITH BARNEY account, send written authorization to your account representative to journal the gift from your Smith Barney account to:
      Account #383-111854-042
      For the account of: Champlain College
    • For all other circumstances, please call the Office of Institutional Advancement for instructions.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Please inform us immediately when you make a stock transfer so we may acknowledge your gift, the value of which is determined by mean stock value on the day the securities are transferred from your ownership, and so we may make sure that your gift is directed according to your wishes. You can contact us at 866-421-7170 (toll free) or 802-383-6620 (local) or email us at advancement@champlain.edu. This is important because your broker may not include your name in the transfer and in that case we won’t know who the gift of stock is from. Donors making gifts at the end of the calendar year should personally contact their broker to confirm that the transfer will be completed on or before December 31.

  • Setting up a recurring gift is easy using our main donation form. Simply select the recurring donation button to get started. You can use a credit card, wallet, PayPal, Venmo, or direct debit from a checking or savings account.

  • Have a current pledge that you’d like to make a payment on? Simply use our main donation form and please write pledge payment in the comment box on the form.

  • There’s a reason we’ve been named a “Most Innovative School” in the North by U.S. News & World Report—our students, faculty and staff think BIG! But they often need some assistance to bring their ideas to life.

    That’s why we created ChampFunder. You can view current and past campaigns, read our FAQ section, or apply to start your own fundraising campaign!

  • Dedicating a financial asset to Champlain College can have a huge benefit to you AND the College. Depending on your personal objectives, we can work with you or your financial advisor on a planned gift that:

    • Does not impact your current cash flow
    • Pays you (or a loved one) income for life or a set amount of time
    • Gives you tax benefits (income tax, estate tax, capital gains tax) in the current year
    • Is as simple as naming Champlain as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, retirement plan or in your will or estate plan

    Read more about these strategies, or contact the Office of Institutional Advancement by email at plannedgiving@champlain.edu or by phone at 866-421-7170 (toll-free) or 802-383-6620 (local) to discuss a personalized giving plan.
