Foundation of America

Gifts of Stock or Other Securities

Many individuals choose to make a gift to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America by donating shares of stock or long-term appreciated securities.

If you are holding appreciated securities (stocks, mutual funds, etc.), a large capital gain can turn an asset into a liability when it comes time to sell. There are many tax benefits to you when you transfer ownership to AFA.

For example:

  • You are entitled to a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the gifted securities as of the date of the gift.
  • Capital gains tax is eliminated since you are donating the securities directly to a charity versus selling them on the open market.

You can transfer gifts of securities to AFA by:
