Gift of Securities
You can make a gift of appreciated securities—publicly traded stocks, bonds, and mutual fund shares—to ORF while avoiding capital gains tax and/or securing a stream of income. It’s easy, and it makes an impact!
How It Works
- You transfer securities to ORF.
- ORF sells the securities and uses the proceeds to fund essential ORF programs.
How You Benefit
- You receive credit and an immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value (average high and low prices on the day of the transfer).
- You completely avoid capital gains tax. Note: To garner the greatest tax savings, the stock contributed must have been held by you for more than 12 months.
