Give a Gift of Stock
Gifts of securities, such as stock are one of the more popular assets used for charitable giving because of the mutual benefits provided to the charitable organization (us) and the donor (you).
How it works…
Selling a stock or bond that has appreciated in value subjects the individual seller to a tax on that capital gain. When you donate appreciated securities, you are able to deduct the gift as a charitable donation AND avoid capital gains tax at transfer, though some capital gains taxation may be a part of the income stream if you choose to fund a gift that pays you income. This dual benefit allows you to leverage a larger donation by using appreciated securities rather than cash to make your gift. Additionally, a charitable gift of securities may entitle the donor to an income tax deduction equal to the value of the security at the time it is given to the charity.
