Giving Stock Makes Sense
A Tax-Smart Way to Make an Impact
Making a gift of appreciated stock to our organization is an investment with real benefits. Aside from the tax advantages of making a generous future gift, you also gain the satisfaction of knowing that you are leaving a lasting impact on a cause close to your heart.
According to a 2016 Gallup poll, more than half of Americans own stock. But many of our supporters do not realize that they can donate appreciated stock to our organization to support our mission in the future.
By design, investment portfolios fluctuate throughout the years. If you opt to sell investments that are worth more than what you originally paid for them, you must pay capital gains tax. Consider donating stock to our organization instead. The chart (directional) shows how the way you make your donation can affect your total tax savings.
