Gifts of Appreciated Securities
How It Works
- You transfer appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares you have owned for one year or more to Audubon.
- Audubon sells your securities and uses the proceeds to support the program you wish to support.
- You receive an immediate income-tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, no matter what you originally paid for them.
- You pay no capital gains tax on the transfer.
