Discover Why Now is the Prime Time
to Donate Appreciated Property
Do you have property that you have owned for more than one year that is now worth more than you paid for it? With the 2013 capital gains tax rate at the highest it has been since 1997, charitable gifts of appreciated property make sense now more than ever before.
Supporting Our Military Students No Matter What
In response to the government shutdown last month, which left the military's tuition assistance program in limbo, Excelsior offered one tuition free course for the Fall II term to enrolled students eligible for military TA so they could continue their progress toward a degree.
