Gifts of Stock

Donating stock or securities offers a number of benefits:

  • A federal income charitable contribution tax deduction based on the stock’s fair market value on the date of the gift (up to 30% of your adjusted gross income) if the stock was owned for more than one year;
  • Carryover of the deduction for up to five additional years if the fair market value of the gift is more than 30% of your adjusted gross income; and
  • Avoidance of capital gains tax that is due when you sell appreciated stock

Note: Stock owned for one year or less is considered a short-term asset and usually won’t produce attractive tax benefits.

Also, if the stock has decreased in value, selling it and making a cash gift to Kids in Tech, Inc. may be more beneficial. You can take a capital loss on federal taxes and still enjoy a charitable deduction up to 50% of your adjusted gross income.

You may give a gift of stock by filling out the form below, or by completing  this form and returning it by mail to:
