Considering a gift of stock?

When people think about making an Annual Fund gift they usually get out their check books. As you assess your tax-deductible donations, consider the wisdom of making this year’s Annual Fund gift to Garth Newel from a different asset. Do you know that you can avoid the dreaded capital gains tax by transferring appreciated stock? In addition to being a smart tax move, a stock transfer minimizes market fluctuations, allowing you to maximize your gift to the Music Center. Here is the form to use to instruct your investment advisor to deliver your shares to us:
