Some donors support Children’s Rights by giving appreciated securities, which can be a tax-smart way to contribute.
When donating appreciated securities, a donor generally receives an income tax deduction for the full market value of the securities given. Further, by donating the securities rather than selling them, a donor can avoid capital-gains taxes on the appreciation of these securities from their original basis.
Please consult your individual tax advisor for more complete information about donating appreciated securities — or speak to Walter Illy, deputy director of development, via email and at 212.683.2210 for more information about supporting Children’s Rights.
