Gifting Appreciated Securities …..A potentially larger tax deduction for you and a larger gift to the Conservancy!

You may want to consider donating long-term appreciated securities, including stock, bonds, and mutual funds, directly to the Conservancy.  Compared with donating cash, or selling your appreciated securities and then contributing the after-tax proceeds, you may be able to automatically increase your gift and your tax deduction.  By gifting the securities to the Conservancy, you’ll avoid capital-gains taxes on the increase in value over time, which you would have had to pay if you sold the stock then gave the Conservancy the cash proceeds.   If you would like to explore this option, please contact Tom Pesek at
