Gifts of Stock
Donations of appreciated securities (stock or mutual funds that have increased in value from the date of purchase and that have been held for at least one year) produce a dual benefit to the donor. In addition to the joy of making a charitable gift, the donor can not only be eligible for a federal charitable deduction but also could avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciation of the stock or mutual fund shares.
