Giving to Harding
In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, Harding has taken great strides to support its students, faculty and staff. We have reimbursed room and board to students and maintained full wages for our faculty and staff. In addition, we plan to extend even more scholarships this coming year to help students directly affected by this crisis. A gift to the Harding Fund directly supports refunds and our employees while also providing need-based scholarships. If you would like to help even more, we encourage you to support the Harding Cares Scholarship Fund that will assist students who have been financially impacted and may have trouble returning to Harding in the fall.

Stocks and Securities
Transferring your investment of stocks and bonds into an investment in Harding's students is a two-part process:
1. Have your stockbroker make transfer arrangements with Harding's stockbroker using the following information:
Charles Schwab & Co
DTC Code: 0164
650 S. Shackleford, Ste. 140
Little Rock, AR 72211
Account Name: Harding University, Inc.
Account #: 4106-6374
Contact: Tim Jones (501)279-4920
2. Contact Harding directly on the date of the transfer, advising us of the name of the stock, the number of shares transferred, the donor's name and instructions about where the gift is to be directed. Email details to Julie Turner, or call Harding Advancement at 800-477-4312 ext 4. The gift is considered complete when the shares are received into a Harding brokerage account, and the value will be based on the average high/low price for the day the shares are received.
Giving stocks and bonds that have increased in value may provide you with greater tax benefits than giving cash. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the securities (subject to AGI limitations), and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the fair market value over the original cost of the asset. Consult your tax advisor for complete information about the tax benefits available.
