Donating Stock

Benefits of Donating Stock

Making a gift of securities is simple and offers a number of valuable financial benefits:

  • The total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible
  • There is no obligation to pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciation
  • You may be able to receive additional Enterprise Zone tax credits
  • You can donate appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds

Please note: Many mutual funds cannot be transferred directly into our account. If you wish to make a gift of mutual funds, please call 303.313.2411 to speak with Griff Freyschlag, Vice President of Development.
