Are stock donations to charity tax deductible?

Appreciated securities are investments that have increased in value from the time they were purchased. Some individuals and households may be able to take advantage of IRS tax provisions to claim a charitable tax deduction for the full, fair market value of the securities, and you may avoid paying capital gains tax on the transfer. 

A gift of stock made before December 31 of a calendar year may reduce your tax burden for the year you give. Your financial advisor can explain the possible tax benefits depending on whether the stock has appreciated or lost value since the time you acquired it.

Can I make a charity like St. Jude the beneficiary of stock in my will?

Yes, you can donate stock as part of your legacy. If you plan to make a bequest of stock to a non-profit like St. Jude, consult an estate planning attorney. Learn more about legacy giving at St. Jude.
