Gifts of Stock
- Appreciated Securities
By giving stock that has appreciated, you receive two benefits. First, you receive a charitable income tax deduction for your donation, and second, you avoid paying capital gains tax which would ordinarily be required if you sold the stock yourself. If you have held the stock for more than 12 months, you can deduct the full fair market value of the stock at the time of your gift, regardless of how much you paid for it.
- Depreciated Securities
If your stock has depreciated in value, another option is to take the capital loss. Sell the stock to realize the loss and take the tax deduction for that loss. Then generate a charitable contribution deduction by donating the cash proceeds to Horizon Academy.
Does your employer participate in the United Way Campaign? We would like you to consider designating your United Way contribution to Horizon Academy. The contributions will enable us to provide financial assistance to students in need.
Ask your employer for a Donor-Directed Contribution form and under the Direct Your Gift section check the box for “United Way in Another City or A Local Non-United Way Agency”. You may then write in the donation amount, our name, address, and FIN Number (provided upon request).
