Gift of Stock

Among the benefits of gifts of stock, you will avoid federal and state tax on capital gains, receive an income tax deduction for the full market value of your gift if you itemize deductions on your tax return and have held the assets for at least one year, and it will enable you to make a larger gift at a lower original cost to you.

FJC recommends you consult your financial advisor and/or tax professional to discuss your individual tax considerations and the implications for this gift.

Due to brokerage firm privacy laws, FJC must have permission to recognize that you have made a stock donation. If you neglect to inform us that your donation is being transferred via stock, the brokerage firm can decline sharing your name with us. This could prevent FJC from acknowledging your generous gift.

When making a gift of stock, please provide us with the following information:

  • Name of securities
  • Number of shares you are planning to transfer
  • Brokerage firm/accounting firm name and information for contact person
  • Your name, address, phone number, and email address
