Gift of Stock

Support research and education initiatives at Van Andel Institute through a gift of stock

Brett Holleman, Chief Development Officer

There are several benefits to donating stock. Contributions of appreciated securities held for over a year are generally deductible at market value, regardless of what the donor paid for them; moreover, the capital gains tax is avoided through such a gift.

Contact Brett Holleman, Chief Development Officer at Brett.Holleman@vai.org or 616-234-5045. 

This will ensure that we correctly credit the gift to you and our bank is aware of the stock transfer.

Please provide:

  • Your name, address and phone number
  • The name of the stock
  • The number of shares contributed
  • The approximate date the transaction was made or will be made
