Tax Advantages of Giving Gifts of Stock

Gifts of appreciated securities are a very common method of giving to the Olivia's Gift campaign. If the stock has increased in value from the time of purchase, you can avoid paying the capital gains tax; the total amount will be eligible for a tax deduction. Prior to making arrangements with a stockbroker or financial advisor, donors are asked to contact at (616) 361-9308. Doing so ensures that you are credited for the gift without delay.

Your Gifts are Tax Deductible

Olivia's Gift is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and, as such, all gifts are deductible. Please consult your financial advisor.
