Gifts of Stock
If you have held publicly traded stock for more than one year, you may take a charitable contribution for the market value of the appreciated stock, which will not require payment of capital gains tax. (Market value of publicly traded stock is the average of its high and low trading prices on the day of the donation.) This combination of deduction with no capital gains tax can result in a bigger deduction (thus more tax savings) for you and a bigger gift to TFK than if the stock is sold and net proceeds are donated.
For more information about donating appreciated stock, contact Meryl Hellring at 412-745-5510 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
