Donate Stocks or Securities
A Simple, Efficient Way to Give
Gifts of stocks are easy to make and may offer more significant tax advantages than cash gifts. A gift of appreciated securities provides considerable benefits, including an immediate charitable deduction for the full market value of the stock and avoidance of capital gains taxes that would normally be due upon sale.
Donations of stocks and appreciated securities allow us to ensure every child at Scotty’s House receives the essential healing services they deserve.
Year-end stock transfers
If you wish to make a gift of securities for the current tax year, start early to ensure that your gift will be completed by December 31. Gifts of stocks or securities often take several weeks longer to process than a traditional cash gift. Delays are possible, especially at year-end. Contact your broker for their deadline to complete transfers by year-end.
