Donating Appreciated Stock
Donating securities—especially highly appreciated stocks—instead of cash is an effective and tax-efficient way to support Friends of Griffith Park. The reason is simple: you avoid Federal and State capital gains taxes. (As always, discuss these types of transactions with your tax advisor.)
Contributing your securities directly to a charity increases the amount of your gift as well as your deduction. And…It’s easy to do!
For stocks and bonds to be donated to Friends of Griffith Park, contact us so we can provide the DTC transfer information for your broker:
Your broker should value the assets at the time of donation for reporting on your tax filing. As no goods or services were provided to you in return for your charitable contribution, the entire amount of your contribution is tax-deductible to the full extent otherwise allowed by law.
