A gift of appreciated securities is an excellent way to support Committee for Green Foothills and may provide tax benefits to you. We are prepared to accept such gifts with a transfer from your brokerage firm or other account. Please consult your tax advisor on the tax consequences of such a gift.
By transferring stock directly to CGF, you may be able to avoid capital gains tax that would be due if you sold the stock and contributed cash.
Because CGF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, you also may be able to deduct the full current market value of the stock donated regardless of the price you paid for the stock. Please consult your tax advisor for details.
| If you hold shares electronically,
ask your broker to transfer the stock directly to one of our brokerage accounts
(details listed at right).
When stock is transferred electronically, the donor's name and address are not transferred. Before transferring stock, please contact CGF so we know who the donor is and can acknowledge the gift promptly and properly.
