GIFTS OF Stock + Securities
With donation of individual stock or mutual fund assets, individuals may be able to receive valuable tax benefits as well.
What’s all this about tax benefits? It’s simple.
If you own an asset that has appreciated in value, you normally pay capital gains tax once you sell the asset. You could then donate the proceeds directly to the Museum.
However, if you simply donated the stock instead, you wouldn’t incur any capital gains. You would be able to deduct the full value of the appreciated shares, thereby saving on taxes. Moreover, MOCAD would benefit from a larger gift than you may otherwise have been able to give.
A transfer on death (TOD) account.* By placing a TOD designation on your brokerage or investment account, that account will be paid over to one or more persons or charities after your lifetime.
