If you own stock that has increased in value since you purchased it, (and you’ve owned it for at least one year), you have a unique opportunity to make a difference. When you donate Securities to Rose Brooks Center, you receive the same income tax savings, if you itemize, that you would if you wrote Rose Brooks a check. But with donated Securities you receive the added benefit of eliminating capital gains taxes on the transfer, which can be as high as 20+ percent – with the added bonus of an income tax deduction, depending on the amount.
Making a gift of securities to support our mission is as easy as instructing your broker to transfer the shares.
P.S. To read more about planned giving or other unique giving opportunities without writing a check, look at these other articles by Chief Development Officer, Marla Svoboda.
