CCK welcomes donations of stocks and mutual funds. If you own stocks and have held them for more than a year, you may be able to deduct the fair market value of the stock and not pay any capital gain tax if you donate the stock instead of selling the stock and donating the proceeds. A little planning in this area can help you take full advantage of the tax benefits available. Please contact Tommy Hill (firstname.lastname@example.org) for help with this.
Many companies allow their employees to make donations to charitable organizations through payroll deductions, and they often match a portion of these gifts. Contact your company’s Human Resources department to see if this option is available.
