Stock Gifts

When you transfer stocks or other securities to the YWCA South Hampton Roads, you are eligible for a tax deduction for fair market value.

Benefits to Giving a Gift of Stock:

  • Your gift of securities entitles you to a federal charitable income tax deduction.
  • You are allowed to deduct the full fair market value of your gift when you make a gift of appreciated securities, as long as you have owned the securities for a year or more.
  • You may use your deduction for up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income.
  • You are allowed to carry any unused deduction forward for up to five additional years.
  • You will not be required to pay capital gains tax on the stock you donate.
