Providing a gift of securities is not only a creative way to help support vulnerable families and children experiencing homelessness, but it also provides sizeable tax benefits. When donating publicly listed securities such as equities, bonds, futures or mutual funds to a charity, you will not be taxed on the capital gains from that investment.
Transferring securities is easy. You may transfer the securities electronically or deliver endorsed certificates directly to Inn from the Cold. To initiate a transfer of securities to Inn from the Cold, print and complete a securities transfer form below, authorizing your broker to release certificates to our organization. Our financial institution will then process the transfer.
If you own securities and they have grown in value, you will be taxed on their capital gains when the securities are sold. By donating those securities directly to Inn from the Cold, your estate can avoid taxes and make a significant gift at the same time.
