If you own securities that have appreciated in value over time, you may owe a substantial
capital gains tax if you sell them. But, if you use such assets to fund a charitable
gift, you may completely avoid the capital gains tax while enjoying a federal income
tax deduction for the full value of the securities. For maximum tax benefits, it
is usually best to give securities that have increased in value the most since you
have owned them. It is also possible to make a gift with appreciated securities in
a mutual fund. For information on donating securities, please call Bobby Prince in
the Development Office at 901-678-1335.
