Gifts of Stock
A charitable contribution of long-term appreciated securities (i.e. stocks, bonds and/or mutual funds) is one of the most tax-efficient of all ways to give. That is because there are multiple benefits to making a gift of this type. In addition to a charitable contribution tax deduction, you generally are able to avoid paying capital gains tax on the increase in value of the assets. It is best to consult with your tax advisor to understand the potential tax benefits related to stock gifts.
For more information about this type of gift, please contact Anna Herman.

It’s easy to find, too, search the Amazon Wedding Registry: Jacobs (first name) Camp (last name) is marrying Utica (first name) Mississippi (last name) on September 25, 2020. Anything we receive will be used during the summer, and will be greatly appreciated!
