Gift of Stock

Get Tax Advantages by Making a Cash Gift Through Appreciated Securities (Stocks)

Gifts of appreciated securities (stocks) are a popular alternative to making a cash gift as they may offer you additional tax advantages. In addition to receiving an income tax deduction for the full market value of the securities, you may also avoid capital gains on the appreciation of your stocks. If your donated securities are used to fund a charitable trust or gift annuity there may be estate and gift tax advantages as well.

To make such a gift, do not sell the stock and donate the proceeds, as this will jeopardize your tax benefits. Instead, notify your broker and contact Becky Carlino in our Development Office at

  1. Donor name

  2. Broker name and contact

  3. Name of stock(s) to be transferred
