Stock Transfers

Gifts of appreciated securities offer important tax advantages, since their full fair market value is deductible as a charitable contribution up to 30% of adjusted gross income each year when itemizing deductions. Like gifts of cash, deduction amounts that exceed the limit can be carried forward for up to five additional years. Capital gains taxes do not have to be paid on the appreciated portion of the gift.

After the Community Foundation liquidates the securities, the value of the gift (net broker's commission and fees) is available to support the donor's charitable goals. The Community Foundation can accept gifts of publicly traded stock, publicly traded bonds, closely-held stock, restricted stock, partnership interests (such as limited partnerships), interests in limited liability companies and mutual funds.
