Appreciated Securities

Gifts of appreciated securities benefit Chimes by providing readily available funds to address Chimes most pressing needs, while also providing significant tax benefits to the donor. When an individual makes a gift of appreciated securities to a qualified 501(c)3, the embedded capital gains are not taxed. Yet the donor is still allowed to deduct the full market value of the security on the date of the transfer to Chimes.
