Gift Planning: Outright Cash Gifts

What is an outright cash gift?

An outright cash gift is when you decide to give a marketable security, such as stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares, to a charitable institution. Stocks listed on one of the major exchanges or actively traded over the counter can be transferred to a charitable institution quickly and easily.

Outright Cash Gifts offer several valuable benefits, including:

  • Income tax charitable deduction
  • Avoidance of capital gains taxes
  • Limitation on tax deduction
  • The joy of seeing your giving make an eternal difference in the U.S. and around the world
