Gifts of Securities

A gift of an appreciated stock which you’ve held for more than a year is better than giving cash.

If you donate stock that has increased in value since you bought it – and if you itemize deductions -- you can take a charitable deduction for the stock’s fair market value on the day you give it away. You’ll also avoid capital-gains taxes on the increase in value over time, which you would have had to pay if you sold the stock and then donated the cash proceeds to the Foundation.
