Stocks and Securities




Recent changes in the federal tax law allows even greater incentives to make charitable gifts using appreciated, publicly listed stocks or securities. These significant changes have eliminate the capital gains tax, when securities are donated directly to a charity.

When you donate stocks or securities to the Foundation, you get a charitable tax receipt for the full value of the donated stock and eliminate the tax due on any capital gain on the securities. Simply put, the greater the gain, the greater the tax savings.
