Are stock donations to charity tax deductible?
Appreciated securities are investments that have increased in value from the time they were purchased. Some individuals and households may be able to take advantage of IRS tax provisions to claim a charitable tax deduction for the full, fair market value of the securities, and you may avoid paying capital gains tax on the transfer.
Instead of selling your investments and donating the after-tax cash proceeds, donating stock to Texas Alpha Endowment Fund allows you to increase your gift and tax deductions. A gift of stock made before December 31 of a calendar year may reduce your tax burden for the year you give. Your financial advisor can explain the possible tax benefits depending on whether the stock has appreciated or lost value since the time you acquired it.
