Gifts of Stock

Thank you for considering making a donation of stock. Your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to the Florida Keys Children’s Shelter. Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide greater tax benefits than giving cash. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save by not incurring brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.

If you would like to ensure hope and help through the donation of stock, please note the following:
