Stocks/Securities

You may achieve tax savings by making your gift via stocks or other capital assets. If you donate appreciated, marketable securities that you have owned for more than one year and one day, you may receive a charitable deduction for the full market value on the date of the transfer. Neither you nor Westmark School would be required to pay capital gains tax on this type of gift. If you have securities that have decreased in value, you may be able to take a deductible loss when you sell the stocks and donate the proceeds.
