Gifts of Stock and Other Securities:
Making a gift of appreciated stock and other securities is easy. For tax purposes, your gift is considered complete on the day that you turn over control of the securities. The value of the gift is its fair market value on that day, and you pay no tax on the capital gains. If the securities are traded daily on a recognized exchange, the value is the average between the high and low prices for that day. For more information on gifts of stock and securities, please call 1-877-GIV-HEAR
Gifts in Kind:
You may choose to donate some of your possessions as gifts in kind. Some of these possessions may otherwise be subject to an estate tax upon the death of the owner. If you donate such valuable objects, you may claim a charitable income tax deduction and you will know that your gifts will be treated with care and protected by Help Me Hear. For more information on gifts in kind, please call 1-877-GIV-HEAR.
