Gifts of Securities
By donating appreciated stocks, mutual funds, or stock options, you pay no tax on the capital gains and receive a tax receipt for the securities’ fair market value. You can donate publicly traded securities like stocks, bonds or mutual funds to Grandview Children’s Foundation during your lifetime or in your will. You can help children in our community live life at their full potential today and in the future.
A gift of appreciated securities is a worthwhile alternative to a cash gift. Flexible choices allow you to decide how you want to give, and the elimination of capital gains tax on gifts of appreciated securities provides you with a substantial tax incentive for donating stock. Other benefits include:
- A charitable tax receipt
- No capital gains tax paid
- Satisfaction of seeing your gift put to good use today
- Recognition on the donor wall
- Naming opportunity in the New Grandview.
