Donate Stocks or Securities

Gifts of stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares can be an economical way for you to make a donation to Edgewood. You may realize significant tax benefits by donating stocks or securities in lieu of making a cash contribution. We encourage you to consult with a financial advisor or tax accountant prior to making a donation of this type.

Benefits of making a stock or securities contribution include:

  • Avoid paying capital gains tax on the increase in value of your stock.
  • Receive an income tax deduction for the full market value of your gift if you have held the assets for at least one year.
  • Make a larger gift at a lower cost to you.
