Stock Donation or Bank Transfer

Gifts of publicly traded securities that have appreciated in value allow you to avoid capital gains taxes while also receiving a tax deduction for your gift. You benefit from making a contribution that would be larger than what you might have been able to donate in cash. Securities may be made as outright gifts or as a payment on a pledge. Stock certificates may be re-assigned directly to CELF or may be transferred through the donor's broker. The mean market value on the date of the transfer will determine the value of the gift for tax purposes. To make a gift of securities to CELF, please contact our Finance Manager.

Build a Legacy of Sustainability

If you would like to give in ways that will also reduce your estate taxes and probate costs, please consider CELF.
