STOCK AND BOND GIFTS
A charitable gift of stock or bonds can help make the dream of homeownership a reality for a deserving family while also providing tax savings for you. A gift of stock owned for more than one year entitles you to a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made. If the stock has appreciated, you also avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciation.
In addition to helping Benton Habitat for Humanity fulfill its mission of eliminating poverty housing, you may diversify away from low-basis, long-term holdings into other assets that will better suit your needs. If you would like to discuss a gift of stocks or bonds, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (541) 752-3354 ext. 301 for more information.
