Thank you for your interest in donating appreciated stocks to the Will Rogers Motion Pictures Pioneers Foundation. To make this process easy for you, we’ve invested in a secure online tool that guides you through the process of making your contribution in just 10 minutes. The tool will already have all of the essential information including our nonprofit EIN and brokerage information, and can help you keep track of your gifts and affiliated tax information. Get started today!
Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide better tax benefits than giving cash. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save on brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.
If you have any questions or would like to learn more, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
