Gifts of Stock
For stock held in brokerage accounts, your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a
direct transfer to the Terry Foundation. This may be more tax advantageous than selling the stocks
and donating the net proceeds.
- You allow the Terry Foundation to receive the full pretax value of those appreciated assets.
- You may avoid long-term capital gains taxes you might otherwise owe.
- You may be able to deduct the full value of the stock on your tax return as a charitable gift.
- You may also save on brokerage fees when you transfer ownership rather than selling the stock.
