Donating Highly Appreciated Securities
If you own highly appreciated stock and would like to join Warrior Foundation Freedom Station in assisting our nation’s ill and injured military heroes, donating stock is both a powerful charitable contribution and a smart tax planning move.
Gifts of highly appreciated securities – including stock, bonds, and mutual funds – provide financial support for the foundation and favorable tax benefits for the donor. Compared with donating cash, or selling your appreciated securities and contributing the after-tax proceeds, you may be able to automatically increase your gift and your tax deduction. When you donate stock that has been held for more than one year and increased in value, you’ll generally take a tax deduction for the full fair market value.
Please consult with your financial, legal or tax advisor prior to making any gifts.
