Many of our members prefer contributing stock, rather than writing a check, to fulfill their annual gift. Donations of stock can also be used to endow an annual gift or establish a planned gift, such as a charitable remainder trust or a donor-advised fund.
If you own stocks that have appreciated in value and been held for more than a full year, you can claim the full market value of the donated shares as a charitable deduction on your income tax and avoid paying capital gains tax on the increase in value of the shares you have gifted.
For more information about gifts of stock or other appreciated property, or to discuss planned giving opportunities, call Jeske Gräve at 208-354-8939.
