Donating a charitable gift of stock or appreciated securities is a great way to make a difference in Redlands while receiving a tax deduction at the same time.
Some of the most favorable tax benefits are generated by contributions of appreciated, long-term, capital-gain securities. In addition to receiving a charitable deduction for the full, fair market value of such a gift, the donor escapes any potential tax on the capital-gains of the gift and any sales commission that would be payable upon the sale of the assets.
To help you facilitate a gift of stock to the Redlands Community Foundation, please use these instructions.
