Gifts of Stock
Make a gift to KNKX by transferring appreciated stocks and securities instead of a traditional donation. By doing so, you may lower tax due on the capital gain and may receive an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the security.
For example, if you give stock with a fair market value of $1000 for which you paid only $100, the "cost" to you for making the gift is only $100. Plus, you may also be able to deduct the full $1000 from your income tax, thereby reducing your cost further.
To donate stocks that are held in your brokerage account, simply give your broker the information listed to the right under "Brokerage Info." If you have additional questions, please reach out to Kaarin Austin. Please let Kaarin or another KNKX gift officer know as soon as your stock gift has been initiated so we can be sure to attribute the gift appropriately when it arrives.
We’re also happy to assist if you wish to donate physical stock certificates, contribute shares in a mutual fund or other appreciated security, or if you or your investment/financial advisor have any questions.
