Gift of Securities

There are distinct income tax advantages of giving securities over cash, and the benefits are twofold: you will receive a deduction for the fair market value of the stock (up to 30% of your adjusted gross income), and capital gains taxes do not apply. Charitable gifts of appreciated securities make sense now more than ever.

Outright gifts of appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, mutual fund shares) to Maine Public are tax deductible at full fair-market value if they are long-term in nature (owned for more than 12 months). To avoid capital gains taxes, you must donate the actual securities, not the proceeds of their sale. You can completely avoid capital gain tax that you would owe on the difference between the cost basis and the price at which the asset is sold.

To take advantage of this tax-wise way to support Maine Public, please contact your broker with the following information:
