Gifts of securities, including stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, can provide financial benefits to you while supporting research.
Even if the value of your securities has decreased, it may be advantageous for you to sell your depreciated securities and make a cash contribution with the proceeds. By selling your depreciated securities before making a gift, you can realize the deductible loss of your investment followed by a tax deduction of your charitable amount.
If the value of donated securities you've held longer than twelve months has increased, you can realize great tax benefits. By making a gift of these appreciated securities, you can avoid paying capital gains taxes on any of the gifted securities while getting a tax deduction equal to the average market value of the securities on the date of the gift.
To ensure the value of your gifted securities is doubled by The Light of Day Foundation and Friends Matching Gift, contact PDF at firstname.lastname@example.org indicate the number of shares and which security you will be donating.
