Donations of appreciated securities, usually common stock, provide a tax-efficient way of making your gift.
Gifts of appreciated securities held for more than one year entitle you to a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift. Additionally, you avoid the capital gains tax that would otherwise be due on the appreciation if the security were sold.
Please notify us before you initiate a stock transfer so we can identify your gift when it is received and acknowledge it in a timely manner.
