Donating appreciated stock is one of the easiest ways to increase your level of support to The Women’s Safe House. Advantages of donating stock include:
- By donating stock that has appreciated for more than a year, you are actually giving 20% more than if you sold the stock and made a cash donation because you are avoiding capital gains taxes.
- Stock gifts are eligible for a tax deduction of the full, fair-market value of the asset donated, up to the overall amount allowed by the IRS.
- Stock gifts are also eligible for the Missouri Domestic Violence Tax Credit – reducing Missouri income taxes by up to 70% of your gift. Please click here for more information and to see an example of how the tax credit can benefit you.
