Stock Gifts

You can give Ridgeview Foundation a gift of securities, including stocks, or mutual funds that have appreciated in value. Gifts of publicly traded securities provide a double tax benefit. You avoid a capital gains tax on appreciated securities, and you receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities.

According to IRS Guidelines, the date and value of your gift are determined by the date on which Ridgeview Foundation takes control of the securities.

Your broker may ask you for the following information to start the transfer process:
