Gifts of Stock
Some individuals elect to contribute to the Foundation through gifts of stock or other types of securities from public companies. The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation benefits through the distribution of dividends and/or liquidation of the assets at fair market value.
Your broker can help you make a gift of stock via a direct transfer to the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation. Giving a gift of publicly-traded stock that you have owned for more than one year and has increased in value may provide more tax benefits than giving cash.
Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save by not incurring brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.
Every contribution, regardless of size, makes a difference and is an investment in education, research, and advocacy to find a cure for cholangiocarcinoma. The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation depends upon your support to continue this important work.
