Gifts of Securities

A gift of appreciated securities may provide you with greater tax advantages than a gift of cash.  By giving appreciated property (for example, stocks or bonds) you can avoid paying capital gains taxes on the appreciation and receive a tax deduction on the value of the gift.  We recommend that you consult with a qualified professional (e.g., an attorney or financial advisor) about any potential tax benefits of your gift.
