Appreciated Stock Donation

Why donate appreciated securities to Suburban Temple - Kol Ami?

  • You receive a tax deduction for the full current market value of the donated stock.
  • You may not incur capital gains tax.
  • You are doing a mitzvah by giving to STKA.
  • When you make a cash gift, the gift is a tax deduction on your federal and state tax return assuming you itemize your deductions. An even greater tax savings can be realized if you donate appreciated securities. (The stock must have been held for more than one year and one day.)

Please consult your tax advisor regarding your specific legal and tax situation.
