Appreciated Securities

The government allows you to deduct the gift of stock as a charitable donation. Giving a gift of appreciated stock also helps you avoid capital gains tax on the transfer. This double benefit means that you can leverage a larger donation by using appreciated securities rather than cash to make your gift.
