gifts of appreciated securities

Important: To insure proper receipting and to allow us to properly thank you for your gift, please send us an e-mail at notifying us of your stock gift.

Make a gift to KPLU by transferring appreciated securities instead of writing a check! By doing so, you may avoid the tax due on the capital gain AND you may receive an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the security.

For example, if you give stock with a fair market value of $1000 for which you paid only $100, the "cost" to you for making the gift is only $100! Plus, you may be able to deduct the full $1000 from your income tax, thereby reducing your "cost" even further.

To donate stocks that are held in your brokerage account (at your brokerage house), simply provide your financial advisor with the following information:
