​Gifts of Stocks and Securities

 

Your gift of stock(or other appreciated property) entitles you to a tax deduction for the market value of your donated stock. If you wish to donate stock that has been held for more than one year, you can avoid capital gains tax on any appreciation of the stock by donating it before you sell it.
 
To make a gift of securities, inform your broker that you desire to make a gift of shares of stock. Your brokerage house transfers the stock into a brokerage account owned by the UWSP Foundation and the Foundation sells the stock.
