Gifts of Stock

A gift of stock not only helps the Community Center, but you, the donor, receives an additional tax benefit.

It is very easy to transfer stocks as a gift to the San Geronimo Valley Community Center. The IRS allows you to make a transfer of appreciated stock to a non-profit organization without recognizing capital gains on the appreciation.  You must use publicly-traded stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares and you must have held these for more than one year.

A gift of appreciated securities may be right for you if:

  • You want to diversify your assets without having to pay the capital gains taxes that would result from the sale of appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds
  • You are holding stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares for more than a year and they have increased in value
  • You want to make a gift that does not affect cash flow or liquidity
