We accept donations of Stock via Overflow. Stock donations can mean up to 20% more value for your donation because of capital gains tax savings.
Donating appreciated stocks or securities is a wonderful way to give a gift of lasting value to the Gray Area. With a donation of individual stock or mutual fund assets, you may be able to receive valuable tax benefits as well.
If you own an asset that has appreciated in value, you normally pay capital gains tax once you sell the asset. You could then donate the proceeds directly to us.
However, if you directly donated the stock instead, you wouldn’t incur any capital gains. You would be able to deduct the full value of the appreciated shares, thereby saving on taxes.
