Get Started

DONATE STOCKS OR SECURITIES

By giving stock, you will receive a tax deduction for your donation based upon the average price of the security on the date you give the gift. This avoids you having to sell the security and pay taxes on the gain. A great way to give a gift and minimize your taxes.
