More Ways to Give
Gifts of appreciated securities (stocks) are a popular alternative to making a cash gift as they may offer you additional tax advantages. In addition to receiving an income tax deduction for the full market value of the securities, you may also avoid capital gains on the appreciation of your stocks. If your donated securities are used to fund a charitable trust or gift annuity there may be estate and gift tax advantages as well. To make such a gift, do not sell the stock and donate the proceeds, as this will jeopardize your tax benefits. Instead, notify your broker and contact the Development Department at (212) 496-4356 for the account numbers in order to make an electronic transfer.
Use our "Employer Matching Gift" search functionality on our online donation forms to see if your employer offers a matching gift program for workplace giving. You may be able to “double” your gift and help even more people.
