Donation of Stock
Increase your gift to Kaleidoscope Fighting Lupus – and your tax deduction – with a donation of long-term appreciated securities, including stock, bonds and mutual funds. It’s simple, it’s easy and it’s a win-win situation; you can eliminate your capital gains tax exposure, take a charitable deduction, and increase the overall amount of your donation!
Keep in mind that:
You’ll receive an income tax deduction on the fair market value on the date of transfer, no matter what you originally paid;
You’ll pay no capital gains on the securities you donate;
And, you’ll have the satisfaction of providing necessary funds and resources to ensure that no one has to face the debilitating effects of lupus alone.
