Stock Gifts
Stock gifts provide the same membership benefits as gifts of cash and can be a cost effective way to donate. A gift of stock that has been held for more than one year allows you to claim a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the donated stock, even if the stock's original cost to you was less than its current value. In addition, there is no capital gains tax due on the stock's appreciation.
