Gifts of stock, bonds or mutual fund shares that have increased in value usually has a greater tax benefit than giving cash. Because of that, appreciated securities are often an advantageous way to make a gift to the hospital. Benefits can include:

  • Increased value for your gift and decreased cost to you.
  • A charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the gifted stock or securities.
  • Elimination of capital gains tax that would normally apply if you sold the appreciated stock or securities on the open market and donated the proceeds.

Many corporations are willing to match their employee’s charitable contributions to qualified not-for-profit organizations.

As an example, if you give $50, your employer might be willing to give an additional $50, bringing your total impact to $100, allowing Maine Medical Center to do that much more for our patients and community.
