Donate Stock

Did you know giving stock can be more beneficial than giving cash? Donors can use appreciated stocks, bonds, and/or mutual fund shares they’ve held more than one year to make their gift to the Jewish Federation. Giving securities enables the donor to both claim a federal income tax charitable deduction for the full, appreciated value of the securities, and pay no capital gains tax on the transaction. This means the after-tax cost is less than a gift of cash.
