Outright Gifts that Make an Immediate Impact

With your outright gift to Johns Hopkins, you will make an immediate impact on Rising to the Challenge: The Campaign for Johns Hopkins, supporting our faculty and researchers in developing new knowledge; investing in scholarships and fellowships to attract the best students, regardless of their financial capacity; and helping us take on global issues that affect us all.

There are also various tax advantages for you when you make an outright gift—whether giving cash or appreciated securities, such as stocks, bonds, or mutual shares, or by donating real estate, like a vacation home.

Types of Outright Gifts

  1. Cash Gifts: Make a gift that Johns Hopkins can use immediately, and receive the maximum charitable deduction.
  2. Appreciated Securities: Receive a charitable deduction and avoid capital gains taxes.
    (See steps for making an outright gift of securities.)
  3. Real Estate: Make a substantial gift to Johns Hopkins through a transfer of residential, commercial, or undeveloped real estate.
  4. Johns Hopkins Donor Advised Fund: Create a central, efficient source for your philanthropy to Johns Hopkins and other qualified nonprofit organizations.
  5. Charitable IRA Rollover: For donors 70 ½ or older, transfer up to $100,000 a year directly from your IRA to Johns Hopkins; avoid taxes; and count the gift toward your required minimum distribution.
