Stock Gifts

Considering offering stocks as a charitable donation?

If so, the transfer process is easy. In two steps most securities can be transferred electronically to our account by your broker. Stock held in certificate form can be transferred by mail or delivery to our offices.

Are there any tax benefits?

Yes, appreciated securities which you have owned for longer than one year generate a charitable income tax deduction for the current market value of the securities. In addition, you avoid capital gain tax on the appreciation in value.

In accordance with IRS requirements, your gift will be valued and receipted at the mean per-share trading price on the date of electronic transfer from your account, or the postmark date for mailed certificates.
