Cash and Stock Gifts

Cash Gifts

Cash donations to College of Eastern Idaho Foundation are fully deductible to the extent allowed by federal law. Gifts qualify for deductions and credits in the calendar year they are given. We provide receipt letters for all gifts given, regardless of the amount.


College of Eastern Idaho would be grateful for your donation of stocks and securities – and you can avoid capital gains taxes made on any sale of appreciated stock that has been held for more than one year. The IRS calculates the fair market value as the average of the high and low price for the security on its primary market on the date the asset is transferred.

We recommend that you first contact your financial advisor for advice, then call the CEI Foundation at 208-535-5398 on how to transfer your gift to our non-profit organization and change the lives of future generations of CEI students!
