Giving Stock – FAQ
Q: What are the benefits of giving stock?
A: You receive gift credit and, depending on your specific tax situation, you may receive an immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, no matter what you originally paid for them. You pay no capital gains tax on the securities you donate.
Q: Securities fluctuate in price. How will my stocks be valued?
A: We will issue an acknowledgement letter indicating the high and low prices for the security on the date of its transfer to us. Your tax advisor will use this information to determine the value of the donation.
If the stock you donate is held by your broker, the gift date is the day the stock reaches our account.
Q: Is it difficult to transfer securities?
A: Not at all, and we can help you through every step of the process.
Q: Shouldn’t I just sell the stock first and contribute the proceeds to Parent Aid?
A: Even though you will receive a deduction, you will pay capital gains tax on the sale, eliminating a key tax benefit of your gift.
Q: Can I contribute securities that have declined in value?
A: The fair-market value deduction rule works against you: if you bought the securities for $50,000 and it’s now worth $30,000, your charitable deduction will be limited to $30,000. You won’t be able to claim a capital loss by making the transfer to us, either. Instead, you are better off to sell the depreciated stock, claim the resulting tax loss as a deduction, then make a deductible cash gift to Parent Aid with the proceeds of that sale.
