Making a Gift of Securities

Making a gift of securities is often the best way to maximize the tax benefits of your gift – especially if the securities have appreciated in value since they were acquired.

The Buck Institute for Research on Aging accepts donations of securities such as stock, shares in a mutual fund, and other equities.  Such gifts require special handling and coordination to ensure that you receive a correct valuation of your gift as well as accurate financial records for the Internal Revenue Service.

It is essential that you and/or your financial representative provide complete information directly to the Buck Institute, as well as to your broker, about a gift of securities.
