Your wise market investment is a great gift to Auburn! By donating the financial instrument, you avoid long-term capital gains tax and deduct the full market value on your tax return. It is almost always to your advantage to transfer appreciated securities to the Foundation directly, rather than selling them and giving cash.
Please contact one of our development team members to learn how to make this transfer.
Even if you have given stock previously, it is very important to contact us so that your gift is properly designated and you receive the recognition and tax credit you deserve.
