When you gift appreciated securities that you have owned for more than one year, you receive a charitable deduction for the fair market value of your gift and avoid taxation of the capital gain.
BID-Milton prefers to receive gifts of securities via DTC. To ensure your gift can be properly acknowledged, please call 617-313-1185 or Kristin_Donelan@bidmilton.org with the name of the security, number of shares, and date of gift. Please provide the instructions below to your broker. Thank you!
