Stocks and Securities
Donations of appreciated stocks and securities are a great option for making a donation. If you have owned stock for at least one year, you are entitled to a tax deduction of the fair market value of the stock on the date of transfer and may also be entitled to capital gains relief.
Making a gift of stock or appreciated securities directly to Montgomery Hospice and Prince George’s Hospice offers advantages to you. First, you will receive the satisfaction of knowing that you have made an investment in an organization that provides compassionate care and support to those who are approaching the end of life. Secondly, you will receive a charitable gift deduction and may also receive capital gains relief.
If you have owned stock for a period of time that has seen a lot of growth and you wish to sell it, you will have to pay capital gains taxes on the difference between the purchase price and selling price. Donating the stock directly to Montgomery Hospice and Prince George’s Hospice will provide you with a tax deduction based on the fair market value of the security (an average of the high and low price of the stock on the day it is donated). Making a direct donation of the stock also saves you the capital gains tax you would have incurred by selling it yourself.
