FAQS ABOUT DONATING GIFTS OF STOCK

  • When donating stock, you are able to claim a tax deduction for the full Fair Market Value of the stock you are gifting
  • By donating stock that has appreciated for more than a year, you are actually giving 20 percent more than if you sold the stock and then made a cash donation. The reason is simple: avoiding capital gains taxes.
  • You can reduce future capital gains taxes by donating some of your appreciated shares. Implementing a donation strategy puts your capital gains to work funding your philanthropy.
  • To be eligible for a charitable deduction for a tax year, donations of stock need to be received by the end of the year. Because different assets take different amounts of time to be transferred, you should initiate your transactions as early as possible.
