Have you considered donating appreciated stock? Donating appreciated stock is a better option than selling shares and donating the cash proceeds. When you give appreciate securities that you’ve owned for more than one year, you may receive two tax benefits:
  1. You may be exempt from paying capital gains taxes on any increase in value, taxes you otherwise would pay if you sold the stock.
  2. You may be entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the current market value of the securities, regardless of their lower original cost, if you itemize.

Please consult your financial, tax, or legal advisor.

Please notify Heather Creelman at for further guidance.

Communities In Schools of NOVA is a 501 (c) 3 status. Your contribution will be tax-deductible.

If you choose to donate, we will not sell or trade a donor’s personal information to any other entity.
