Stock Gifts

Giving securities (appreciated stocks and bonds) is an easy and tax-wise way to show your support to the ICA. As the owner of stocks or bonds that have appreciated in value, selling these assets incurs capital gains taxes. Donating these securities is a cost effective way to make a charitable gift.
