Gifts of Appreciated Securities
Receive a Tax Deduction for Using These as Gifts
If you have securities or mutual funds that have increased in value and you have owned them for more than one year, consider gifting them to MICDS. When you donate these assets, you reduce or eliminate federal capital gains taxes, and may also be entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction.
Securities are most often used to support our work in the form of:
An outright gift. When you donate securities to MICDS, you receive the same income tax savings that you would if you wrote us a check, but with the added benefit of eliminating capital gains taxes on the transfer, which can be as high as 20 percent.
A transfer on death (TOD) account.* By placing a TOD designation on your brokerage or investment account, that account will be paid over to one or more persons or charities after your lifetime.
