Make a Gift of Your Stock or Other Appreciated Securities

A gift of stock, bonds or mutual shares that has increased in value, usually has a greater tax benefit than giving cash. Because of that, appreciated securities are often an advantageous way to make a gift to the hospital. Benefits can include:

  • Increased value for your gift and decreased cost to you.
  • A charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the gifted stock or securities.
  • Elimination of capital gains tax that would normally apply if you sold the appreciated stock or securities on the open market and donated the proceeds.
