GIFTS OF STOCK or SECURITIES

Making a donation of securities is a tax-wise way to support brain and behavior research:

A gift of appreciated securities might provide tax advantages far greater than a gift of cash.  When you transfer ownership of stock held long-term (a year and a day) you may be eligible to receive a charitable deduction for their full market value of the security and incur no capital gains tax.  Of course, you should consult with your tax advisor before making any gift of securities.
