Donating appreciated stock is an ideal way to support our work guiding families from crisis to self-sufficiency, while also receiving tax benefits.
Gifts of appreciated securities that have been held for longer than one year are exempt from capital gains taxes. When you donate appreciated stock to Family Supportive Housing, you are entitled to a tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities at the time of transfer.
To avoid exposure to capital gains tax, the stock must be transferred to Family Supportive Housing. We then sell the stock from our account.
Stocks may be transferred electronically or directly. To facilitate the electronic transfer of funds, please provide the following information to your broker:
