Give a Gift of Securities

Thank you for considering giving CAPE* a gift of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or other securities. We recommend you first speak with your Financial Advisor to determine the best course of action for any charitable gifts of stock or other securities.

When you give us a gift of securities, the tax rate of capital gains is only 25%. This is an excellent and financially responsible way to support a cause you believe in.

Here is an example of how this sort of gift will work, showing the tax credit of publicly traded securities that originally cost $1000 and are now valued at $2000:

Tax receipt: $2000
Taxes payable on disposition: $1000(gain) x 25% (reduced capital tax) x 50% (assumed tax rate) = $125 Capital Gains Tax
Donation tax credit value: $2000 x 50% (assumed tax rate) = $1000 claimed on income tax form
Net tax benefit: $1000-$125 = $875
