Contribute with a stock transfer

Giving stock may offer you a tax advantage

If you own appreciated stock or mutual funds, you may receive a two-fold tax advantage.

  1. You will avoid paying capital gains tax on the increase in the value of the stock or mutual funds. For example, if you donate stock that you purchased for $1,000 and is now worth $5,000, you will not have to pay capital gains tax on the $4,000 appreciation.
  2. You will receive a federal income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock or mutual funds at the time of the gift. Using the same example above, an outright gift of that stock would provide a full charitable contribution deduction of $5,000.
