The Benefits of Donating Stock
Donating securities is likely the smartest way to donate. Below are just a few reasons why.
It's smart tax-wise
When you donate stocks you do not have to pay capital gains taxes like you normally would if you sold the stock and made a profit. Furthermore, Stock donations are also tax deductible. That means that when you file your federal taxes, if you itemize deductions, you can deduct the donation from your taxable income.
You give more
The maximum federal capital gains tax rate is 20 percent on long-term holdings. So by donating stocks instead of selling them and then giving the cash, you avoid these capital gains taxes and actually give more. For us, this means we are better able to help youth pursue their education.
But what if I don't want to change my portfolio?
You can always donate stock and then buy the same number of shares immediately after, so your portfolio stays the same. This is actually a great way to reset your "cost basis" because you eliminate all the capital gains on your previous shares. This means you save more in taxes if you decide to sell in the future to make a profit.
