GIFTS OF APPRECIATED STOCK: While cash donations to the Children’s Museum are always appreciated, you may not know that you can also donate by gifting appreciated stock. Gifting appreciated stock effectively generates a double tax benefit. You receive a charitable deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid the taxable event of selling. For example, if you own 100 shares of a stock that has a $2,000 gain, donating those shares to the Children’s Museum would give you a charitable deduction equal to the fair market value plus you avoid paying the capital gains tax on the $2,000 gain. The Children’s Museum still receives the benefit of your generous donation! Talk to your financial advisor or ask us for a recommendation of a local professional to help you.
