A gift of long term appreciated publicly traded stock may entitle you to an income tax charitable deduction for the fair market value of the stock on the effective date of the gift and also avoid capital gains tax. In many cases it is more advantageous for you to donate the securities to a qualified organization than to sell the securities and donate the cash proceeds. However, we recommend that you consult your tax advisor for additional information.
