Other Ways to Give

Stock or Securities

A gift of appreciated securities – either publicly traded or from a private company – may provide greater tax advantages than gifts of cash.  With a gift of stock, you can deduct the fair market value as a charitable gift and completely avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation.
