How can I give securities or stocks?
HUMAA gifts of publicly traded securities that have appreciated in value allow you to avoid capital gains taxes while also receiving a tax deduction for your gifHUMAA) benefits by selling the stock without paying taxes on the gain, and you benefit from making a contribution that would be larger than what you might have been able to donate in cash. You can specify which area of HUMAA you would like the proceeds to support, or have them contributed to the annual fund.
Please telephone, or have your financial advisor call us immediately after the gift is made to our investment firm so that we can immediately provide you an acknowledgment letter, which will include the value.
