Gifts of Stock or Appreciated Assets
A gift of appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy way for you to make a gift to Victory Junction. Keep in mind, donating appreciated stock or other appreciated assets (ex. publicly traded securities, bonds, etc.), gives you a greater tax deduction than you will receive if you were to sell the shares and donate the cash proceeds. This is because when you donate shares, you avoid paying any capital gains tax.
Benefits of Gifts of Stocks and Bonds
● You receive a charitable income tax deduction
● You avoid capital gains tax on the growth of the value of your securities
● You make an impact for the kids at Victory Junction!
