Better is Possible.
Gift of Stock
You can give FamilyMeans a gift of securities, including stocks, or mutual funds that have appreciated in value. Gifts of publicly traded securities provide a double tax benefit. You can avoid a capital gains tax on appreciated securities, and you can receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities.
According to IRS Guidelines, the date and value of your gift are determined by the date on which FamilyMeans takes control of the securities.
