Gifts of securities are a cost-effective opportunity to transform an asset into immediate and significant support for the Weizmann Institute. By donating appreciated stocks, mutual funds, stock options or flow through shares, you pay no tax on the capital gains, receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities, and reduce your taxes.
A gift of appreciated securities is a worthwhile alternative to a cash gift. Flexible choices allow you to decide how you want to give, and the elimination of capital gains tax on gifts of appreciated securities provides you with a substantial tax incentive for donating stock. The benefits of donating securities include: – Satisfaction of seeing your gift put to good use today – A charitable tax receipt – No capital gains tax paid
– Giving immediately or as part of your estate planning – Donating part of your stock and retaining the remainder for personal use – Flow-through shares
