Donate Stock

Gifts of Appreciated Assets

Did you know that a direct transfer of appreciated stock is a good way to make a gift to the Mission? There are very favorable tax rules for donors who want to donate long-term stock that has appreciated in value. You avoid paying capital gains taxes on the stock. You may also be able to take a charitable deduction for its present market value. Please see IRS Publication 526 for more tax information on Charitable Contributions. You can also speak with your broker about gifts of appreciated assets.

Giving Property That Has Depreciated in Value

Do you have stock or other property that has decreased in value? You will normally save more in taxes by selling it and giving the proceeds of the sale to the Mission. Then you may be able to claim a capital loss on your tax return. You can also deduct the cash proceeds you give as a charitable gift. This can result in tax deductions that amount to more than the current value of the asset. The tax deduction for gifts of depreciated property will be based on the current value. It is not based on what you originally paid for it.
