Donate Stock or Funds

Donate Stock or Mutual Funds

Donating appreciated securities – such as stock or mutual funds – to National Diaper Bank Network is a tax-wise approach to providing for children in need. Many donors choose to give gifts to National Diaper Bank Network using long-term appreciated stocks and mutual funds due to the attractive tax advantages associated with such gifts.

The benefits available to you when making a charitable contribution of stock or mutual funds may include:

  • Avoiding federal and state tax on the capital gain;
  • Receiving an income tax deduction (federal and most states) for the full market value of the gift if you itemize deductions on your tax return and have held the assets one year or longer;
  • Making a larger gift at a lower original cost to you.

Important facts to remember:

  • You must itemize your tax return in order to deduct a charitable donation.
  • You must have owned the securities for at least one year before donating them or you will be limited to a deduction of your original purchase cost of the securities.
  • You may take a deduction valued up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. If the deduction is greater than 30 percent, you may carry any unused deduction forward for up to five years into the future until it has been fully used.
  • We encourage you to consult your financial planner or tax advisor who can assist you in evaluating the tax advantages available to you when making a donation of appreciated securities.
