Are you considering making a gift of securities?  If you hold securities that would incur a tax on capital gains if sold, an outright gift to Eastside Prep could provide significant benefits.  You obtain a tax deduction for the full market value of the gift and may avoid a tax on the increase in value.  Plus, the gift value may be matched through funds made available by many employers.  For instructions on how to make a gift of securities to Eastside Prep, please contact Vickie Baldwin, Director of Institutional Advancement, at or Casey Otley, Chief Financial Officer, at
