Gifts of Securities

Thank you for your interest in donating publicly traded securities to Hope Mission. Gifts of Securities are gifts of stock and shares from a publicly traded company. When a stock is performing well, it is subject to capital gains tax. Individuals who are cashing in a stock for personal use are subject to pay tax on 50% of the capital gain.

As of May 2, 2006, all donations of publicly traded securities to public charities will be exempt from capital gains tax.

Giving stocks, bonds, and mutual funds to Hope Mission will eliminate the capital gains tax on the increase in value. When you combine your capital gains tax savings with your charitable tax credit, the savings can be significant.

To get started, please download the Securities Transfer Form and follow the instructions.
