Gifts of Stock

Your gift of stock will make an impact for kids in foster care and it can offer two ways to save on your taxes. As long as you have owned the stock for more than one year, you can generally receive an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock at the time of the gift (up to 30% of your adjusted gross income), and you avoid paying any capital gains tax on the increase. Giving securities frees up cash and can help diversify investments.

When you itemize your tax deductions, charitable gifts may be used to eliminate federal income tax on up to half of your adjusted gross income. The higher your tax rate, the more your gifts will save you. Any unused deductions may be carried over in as many as five future years.
