FAQs About Stock Donations

Why Donate Stock Instead Of Cash?

Donating to a charity by any means is generous. However, when it comes to donating stocks vs. cash, there are some benefits. Due to capital gains tax laws, by donating a stock that has appreciated for more than a year, you are giving 20% more than if you sold the stock and then made a cash donation.

What Are The Tax Benefits Of Donating Stock?

Donating stock directly to a qualified organization, nonprofit, or charity is one of the most tax-smart ways to give. After giving your appreciated shares, you can buy new shares to reset your cost basis at the current, higher price. Donating reduces your future capital gains tax exposure if the stock continues to grow in value.
