Gifts of Securities
Did you know that gifts of marketable securities with an unrealized long-term capital gain are generally more cost effective than gifts of cash?

A few benefits of a gift of securities:

  • Avoid capital gains tax on appreciation.
  • Charitable income tax deduction equal to full value of securities held more than a year. Deductibility is limited to 30% of adjusted gross income with a five-year carryover of amounts in excess of this limitation.

Procedures

  1. If you want to donate stocks or bonds held in your brokerage account:
    • Call the Office of Planned Gifts at 800.999.0181 or 504.865.5794 to obtain a sample broker instruction letter containing all pertinent information
    • The transfer usually can take place within 1-3 days of your broker's receipt of the instruction letter
  2. If you want to donate mutual fund shares:
    • Call the Office of Planned Gifts for instructions; transfer procedures vary with each mutual fund
    • A transfer of mutual fund shares usually takes longer than a transfer of stocks or bonds
