Stock and Real Estate
Donors like you often find that giving stock and real estate makes more financial sense than giving cash since they may avoid paying capital gains tax on their appreciated assets while potentially receiving a tax deduction for the full value of the gift. These benefits result in making a greater impact through their giving.
A gift of stocks, bonds and mutual funds appreciated in value are among the best ways to help Project ChildSafe® achieve its mission. You may receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the stock and avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the value of the stock.
You may also want to consider naming Project ChildSafe as the beneficiary of a checking or savings bank account, a certificate of deposit (CD) or a brokerage account by notifying your bank the next time you are there.
Giving real estate is the kind of gift that is ideal for someone who intends to continue living in their home or property through their lifetime but still wants to make a charitable gift.
We recommend that you consult with your attorney or financial advisor before making a stock or real estate gift to ensure that your wishes are properly expressed and fulfilled.
