Gifts of Appreciated Securities (stocks, bonds or mutual funds)

Easy-To-Use Transfer Instructions:

Gifts of appreciated securities may provide significant tax benefits. Capital gains taxes are completely avoided and you receive an income tax deduction for the full market value of the security on the date of the transfer to Chimes.

If you have investments that are now worth less than they cost, consider selling them and use the proceeds to make a gift to Chimes. This creates a loss you may be able to deduct from other taxable income, as well as, a deduction for the amount of the contribution. The combined deductions may total more than the value of the investment.
