Gifts of stock or other appreciated property offer two-fold tax savings: Donors pay no capital gains on increased value of the appreciated property, and they receive an income tax deduction for the full market value at the time of the gift. Transferring securities is easy. To receive a transfer form and to ensure proper tax credit, timely acknowledgement, and accurate processing of your stock donation, please contact Diane Stair at dstair@crowden.org or 510.559.6910 ext 121.
