Don’t Overlook the Benefits of Giving Appreciated Stock

With the stock market at historic highs, don’t overlook the benefits of giving stock to The Spastic Paraplegia Foundation.

There are real advantages to giving appreciated stock versus cash. You can take an immediate tax deduction for the full market value of the stock and also avoid the capital-gains tax you would owe by cashing in the securities. Then, using the cash you might have otherwise donated, you can repurchase the same stock at a higher cost basis for capital gains purposes.

Just send an email to donate@sp-foundation.org to ask for full easy instructions on how to donate stock. This is a real win-win arrangement that should not be overlooked.
