Gifts of Appreciated Stock, Bonds or Mutual Funds

Make an immediate impact by giving a gift of appreciated assets. You’ll avoid capital gains tax on securities you donate and receive an immediate tax deduction.

Donate appreciated stock, bonds or mutual funds to save even more lives.

A donation of stock is a powerful and easy way to support and further the Friends mission and receive a significant tax break from the IRS. You will not pay capital gains tax on the securities you donate and you will receive an immediate tax deduction for the fair market value on the date of transfer. As always, we recommend that you consult your tax or financial professional for advice before making charitable donations.
