A charitable contribution of long-term appreciated securities — i.e. stocks, bonds and/or mutual funds that have realized significant appreciation over time — is one of the most tax-efficient of all ways to give. To make a gift of long-term appreciated securities, follow the instructions below:
Contact your broker in writing, letting them know that you wish to give appreciated securities to The Wistar Institute. The Stock Transfer Letter provides information regarding securities donations.
The value of your gift will be calculated by using the mean value of each share on the date the shares arrive in our brokerage account. Our preferred broker is Janney Montgomery.
