Transfer of Funds and Securities

Stock and Mutual Fund Shares

Stock and Mutual Fund Shares

Did you know that gifts of stock can give your family a tax benefit even in a fluctuating market?

These gifts can reduce the capital gains you would pay without changing your portfolio.

Donating a charitable gift of stock or mutual fund shares is a great way to improve the lives of those with Parkinson’s disease and receive an end-of-the-year tax deduction.

Some of the most favorable tax benefits are generated by contributions of appreciated, long-term, capital-gain securities.

In addition to receiving a charitable deduction for the full, fair market value of such a gift, the donor escapes any potential tax on the capital-gains of the gift and any sales commission that would be payable upon the sale of the assets.

Many of our supporters choose to take advantage of this especially smart way to give.
