Before making your estate plans, you should consult with a qualified estate planner, financial planner and/or attorney.
Donating publicly traded stock provides better tax benefits than a traditional donation. If you have held your stock for more than one year, your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock, not its cost basis, and you avoid paying capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. With your support, we can make our vision a reality and create a stronger and safer community through our kids!
To make a gift of stocks or securities, please complete and submit our printable securities transfer form to Lisa Tartaglia at or fax (650) 522-7551.
For more information about benefits in your particular case, please contact your tax advisor.
