ResearchILD accepts gifts of securities. These gifts are tax-advantageous to the donor if the stock has increased in value since it was purchased (more than a year earlier). The donor can take a charitable deduction for the stock’s fair market value on the day it is gifted, and will also avoid capital gains taxes on the increase in value over time. We recommend you contact your financial advisor or family attorney to decide if this type of donation is right for you.
