Donating appreciated securities often allows donors to make a bigger philanthropic impact, and to receive greater tax advantages than donating cash or selling the stock and donating the proceeds. By donating appreciated securities, you bypass capital gains tax and may deduct the fair market value of your gift.
When transferring securities, please notify our office that you have made a gift to your Donor Advised Fund or other fund. Because of privacy practices, our brokerage firm will not be able to identify the donor for each transfer.
