Stock Gifts

For stock held in brokerage accounts, your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to Goochland Pet Lovers. Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide better tax benefits than giving cash. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. Goochland Pet Lovers nor its employees may give legal, tax, or accounting advice. Counsel should be contacted prior to drafting or amending any instrument.
