Consider giving a gift of securities – such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds – to the Ohio Environmental Council. Gifts of securities can be a smart alternative to making a cash donation when you hold securities that have appreciated over time.
By donating appreciated stock or other securities, you may receive significant tax benefits: an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities and avoidance of capital gains tax on the appreciation.
Donating, rather than selling, your appreciated assets puts you in control of distributing your property. You choose who will receive it, rather than sacrificing part of its value to capital gains tax.
Donations are tax deductible for the market value of the security on the date it is given to the Ohio Environmental Council.
