Stocks

Increase your gift, and your tax deduction, with a stock gift today.
Donating stock or securities offers a number of benefits:
  • A federal income charitable contribution tax deduction based on the stock’s fair market value on the date of the gift (up to 30% of your adjusted gross income) if the stock was owned for more than one year;
  • Carryover of the deduction for up to five additional years if the fair market value of the gift is more than 30% of your adjusted gross income; and
  • Avoidance of capital gains tax that is due when you sell appreciated stock.
Note: Stock owned for one year or less is considered a short-term asset and usually won’t produce attractive tax benefits. If your stock has decreased in value, selling it and making a cash gift to the CFCC Foundation is probably more beneficial than keeping it. You can take a capital loss on federal taxes and still enjoy a charitable deduction of up to 50% of your adjusted gross income.
