Gifts of Stock
Stocks and securities giving can offer many benefits to you as a donor. By giving long-term appreciated securities such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, you may be able to receive a double tax benefit—a charitable deduction and avoidance of capital gains tax. You may even be able to increase the amount of your gift because of its decreased cost to you.
