Gifts of Stock

Donating Stocks

Thank you for your interest in donating a gift of stock to Mission to North America. Gifts of stock that have been held for more than one year are frequently the most economical way to give and have many benefits. A gift of appreciated stock generally offers significant tax savings—you can potentially avoid paying capital gains tax on the increase in value of the stock, and you can receive an income tax deduction for the full fair-market value of the stock at the time of the gift.

We strongly advise you to consult with your accountant or tax advisor to determine the income tax effect of your donation.

Transfer Shares Electronically

It is very important to contact us at when the transfer has been completed or call us at (678) 825-1253.
