Gifts of Securities
Many of our friends like to support The Army Historical Foundation through a gift of stock. If you transfer stock that has been held for more than twelve months, and which has appreciated in value, you may take a charitable deduction for the full present fair market value, and you will not pay capital gains taxes.
If you would like to contribute securities on which you have suffered a loss, you sell them and donate the proceeds to The Army Historical Foundation. You will realize a charitable deduction in addition to the tax deduction for the loss.
If you use appreciated securities to fund a planned gift, you may increase your income as well as gain an income tax charitable deduction and avoid capital gains taxes. After your lifetime, your gift will support The Army Historical Foundation.
