Give a gift that changes the world for people with disabilities or seniors by sharing Jesus with them; gifting appreciated stocks (that you’ve held for more than one year) is one way to do that.
You have $10,000 worth of stock shares bought four years ago for a cost of $5,000. If you sell the shares, you would owe approximately $750 in tax on the profit (netting $9,250 for charity and for your charitable tax deduction). If you donate the shares to The Lutheran Home Association (TLHA), we will get the full $10,000 and you would avoid the $750 tax bill while also getting to deduct the full $10,000 as a charitable deduction.
Benefits of transferring stock.
- The Lutheran Home Association receives the full value of the appreciated gift to do more ministry.
- You avoid paying taxes on your capital gains.
- Your gift provides a charitable deduction based on the full value of your appreciated gift.
