Closely Held Business Stock
A business owner who contributes closely held stock to the University of Illinois Foundation for the benefit of UIC will be allowed a charitable deduction for the fair-market value of the stock. An additional benefit is that the donor will escape the potential capital-gain tax on any appreciation in the value of the stock.
Subsequent to the gift, the corporation could purchase the stock from the University of Illinois Foundation for cash. This not only enables the donor to retain complete control over the company but also makes cash available to the University of Illinois Foundation to benefit UIC. As long as the University of Illinois Foundation is not obligated to sell the stock to the corporation, the transaction should produce no adverse tax results.
