Gifts of Publicly Traded Securities

Gifts of stock, bonds and mutual funds to Harvest Aviation can have a huge positive impact, both on one’s financial circumstances and on Harvest’s ability to help care for those in need. Generally, it is a mistake to sell appreciated securities and then to donate that cash to charity. A much better solution is to transfer the stock directly to Harvest Aviation, thereby eliminating the onerous capital gains taxes and at the same time earning a nice charitable income tax deduction. Therefore, with a gift of securities a donor can make a greater impact on Harvest’s mission compared with a donation of cash.
