Yes, I want to save children's lives
Support Children’s HeartLink with gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares
Giving appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares held more than one year can provide an immediate benefit to Children’s HeartLink and may be more tax efficient than giving cash.
By making a gift using appreciated securities held for more than one year, donors may receive a double tax benefit. They avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation of the donated asset, and may claim an immediate deduction for the current fair market value of the property—up to 30 percent of adjusted gross income.
Any unclaimed portion of the deduction may be carried forward for up to five additional years, subject to the same annual limit.
Instructions for making gifts of appreciated securities
To make a gift, talk to your broker about the securities you’d like to give, then have your broker contact:
