Why Give the Gift of Stock?
Why consider giving the gift of stock? It’s a win-win for everyone involved.
Using Stock to Meet Your Philanthropic Objectives
If you have a specific giving goal in mind, donating stock can help you achieve it without simply writing a check. For example, pairing a $5,000 cash gift with $5,000 in stock can make it easier to reach a $10,000 annual giving goal.
Increase Your Giving Impact
A gift of appreciated stock to Longitude benefits you in two ways: you receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities, and simultaneously, you may avoid capital gains taxes on the appreciated stock. This maximizes the value of your gift and increases your giving power.
