Gifts of Securities

In most cases, an outright gift of appreciated securities entitles the donor to an income tax charitable deduction for the fair market value of the securities and, in the case of securities which have been held for more than a year, the avoidance of a capital gains tax.

 

Planned Giving

A planned gift incorporates philanthropy with estate and financial planning to benefit both you and TCS. Planned gifts (including gifts of real estate, life insurance, and charitable gift annuities) can provide many financial and non-financial benefits to you, including fulfillment of philanthropic goals, tax savings, and asset management. If you are considering a planned gift to TCS, please consult a financial planner and our executive director.
