Gifts of Stocks and Bonds

Making a gift of securities is simple and offers a number of valuable financial benefits:

  • You can donate appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds
  • The total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible
  • There is no obligation to pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciation

We recommend that you discuss this with your tax advisor. We would be happy to talk to you or your broker to facilitate a gift of appreciated assets such as stocks or bonds. To learn more, please contact our Finance Department at (410) 423-0600 or Finance@FightBlindness.org.

Giving from a Donor Advised Fund

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving program administered by a third party that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support your favorite charities. It is created for the purpose of managing charitable donations on behalf of an organization, family or individual. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals. We recommend that you discuss this with your tax advisor. To facilitate giving to the Foundation Fighting Blindness from your DAF, please contact our Finance Department at (410) 423-0600 or Finance@FightBlindness.org.
