Giving long-term (owned more than a year), appreciated securities may provide greater benefits to you and United Way!

Making a gift of appreciated securities is a great way you can make a difference in our community. Donated assets such as stocks and mutual funds may provide you with an income tax deduction based on the fair market value of the gift and eliminate all capital gains taxes. Please consult with your tax advisors for specific tax advice when giving securities.
