The gift of an asset, often common stock or mutual fund shares, is a valuable way to make a contribution to Girl Scouts River Valleys. When gifting stock, you can receive an immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value, no matter what you originally paid. You will pay no capital gains tax on the transfer, and giving appreciated stock may be more beneficial than giving cash.
You transfer the appreciated stock, bonds, or mutual fund shares that you have owned for more than one year. Girl Scouts River Valleys sells your securities and uses the proceeds for girl programming.
