Gifts of Securities

Giving securities is one of the most effective ways to give from a tax planning perspective. Giving publicly traded securities to UC Hastings that were purchased over a year ago and have increased in value can be an especially attractive way to fund a donation. A donor may benefit from a charitable deduction equal to the value of the securities. In addition to the tax deduction, capital gains tax is not due on gain in the donated securities.
