Make a Stock or Mutual Fund Gift
Donating shares of stock or mutual funds can offer tax advantages to you in addition to supporting the mission of Open Arms of Minnesota. When you make a gift of stock to our organization, you avoid the capital gains tax that would be due upon selling the stock. You also receive a charitable tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock that you’ve owned for more than one year. Additionally, a gift of appreciated stock maximizes your deduction while allowing you to retain your liquidity. Please speak with a professional to determine if a gift of appreciated stock to Open Arms is right for you.
