Gifts That Reduce Your Taxes

You can make a bigger impact in the fight to end animal cruelty than you ever thought possible. What’s more, you can also enjoy tax benefits from these gifts now, or you can establish a future gift that will pass tax benefits along to your loved ones.

Stocks and Securities

When you give stock or securities (stock, bonds, mutual funds), you may be eligible for a double tax benefit: 1) You receive an income tax deduction for the full, present, fair market value of the assets and 2) you may completely avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation of the assets. This is one of the easiest gifts to give and one of the most useful in accomplishing your philanthropic goals. 

Our free stock-giving tool makes it easy to learn more about the potential tax savings from donating stocks, Access or transfer information, and guides you through the necessary paperwork in less than 5 minutes.
