Donating appreciated shares of securities is sometimes an attractive alternative to a cash contribution. It may provide you with significant tax advantages.
A gift of appreciated security generally offers the following tax savings:
- You avoid paying capital gains tax on the increased value of the security held for more than one year.
- You receive an income tax deduction for the full market value of the security on the date that Asbury University receives the gift.
