By donating common stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and other appreciated securities, donors may also receive tax benefits that include avoiding long-term capital gains tax and obtaining deductions for their annual income tax filing. In most cases, donors can maximize their contribution through gifts of stock by transferring these appreciated securities to the Alabama 4-H Foundation directly, rather than liquidating them first and donating the proceeds of that sale to the foundation.
Before directing a transfer agent to transfer a stock gift, contact the Alabama 4-H Foundation. Contact a staff member by calling (334) 844-5536 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We can answer any questions you may have about making a donation.
The Alabama 4-H Club Foundation, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) organization. All donations are tax-deductible according to IRS standards.
