Gifts of Stock and Appreciated Assets
How it works:
- You transfer appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares you have owned for more than one year to Good Shepherd Hospice.
- Qualify to receive an income tax deduction for the full fair-market value of the stock upon being sold.
- You receive an immediate income tax deduction for the full fair-market value of the securities on the date of the transfer (even if you originally paid much less for them).
- Avoid long-term capital-gain taxes on any appreciation in the value of the stock
- Giving appreciated stock can be more beneficial than giving cash. The “cost” of your gift is often less than the deduction you gain by making it.
