Stock Gifts

Making a gift of stock can have terrific tax advantages, especially if the stock has appreciated in value. Advantages to donating a stock gift to AFSP include:

  1. The ability to invest in a cause that is important to you and partner with AFSP in its life-saving mission.

  2. The ability to avoid capital gains taxes.

  3. Becoming eligible to receive an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair-market-value of the stock at the time of the gift.

*In order to qualify for these tax advantage, the security must have been held for at least one year.

To make a gift of stock, please complete the form below. Once the form is submitted, you will receive an email with details for the transfer process as well as contact information for AFSP's broker, Vanguard.

If you know the name and the number of shares you will be transferring, please be sure to include those details as it allows us to receive and recognize the gift appropriately.
