Donating a charitable gift of stock is a great way to support the mission of WEV, while receiving a tax deduction.
Some of the most favorable tax benefits are generated by contributions of appreciated, long-term, capital-gain securities. In addition to receiving a charitable deduction for the full, fair market value of such a gift, the donor escapes any potential tax on the capital-gains of the gift and any sales commission that would be payable upon the sale of the assets.
To help you facilitate a gift of stock to Women’s Economic Ventures (WEV), please use these instructions:
Step 1: Initiate the Transfer
