If you have a loved one who has been impacted by the mission of The Jackson Laboratory, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while helping people worldwide live healthier lives. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in accelerating the discovery of treatments, therapies and cures.
When Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising JAX for its leadership in biomedical research.
Sarah decided to make a gift to the JAX in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at JAX thanks to the gift, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
