Supporting MIS through a donation of appreciated stock

Each year, a number of our supporters make their donation to MIS through a gift of appreciated stock. This is a fantastic way to minimize your capital gains taxes and also receive the benefits of supporting MIS.

Through a partnership with Austin Community Foundation (ACF), our supporters are able to transfer appreciated stock to ACF to benefit MIS. Please notify us and ACF of any anticipated donations by emailing and This will ensure that the stock is attributed to the correct donor and that it is re-granted to MIS. The fee for this service to MIS is 5% or $250, whichever is lower.

Please discuss the benefits of making a stock donation with your financial advisor or broker, and visit this page for detailed instructions. Thank you for your support of our students and our school!
