Stocks, Bonds & Real Estate
Gifts of securities are often the most advantageous donation from a tax perspective–and made easy with the help of your fund administrator. Contributing long-term, appreciated securities to your fund account allows you to avoid paying capital gains tax. In addition, you still receive an income tax deduction equal to the full fair market value of the security at the time it is contributed. Gifts of long-term, appreciated securities are fully deductible in the current year up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income.*
* Amounts contributed in excess of the threshold may be carried forward up to 5 years.
