If you have held the appreciated securities for more than a year, you avoid capital gains taxes and qualify for a charitable deduction.

In addition to give appreciated securities as an outright gift, you may choose to make a gift of securities or stocks through a trust, thereby preserving income during your lifetime or the lifetime of your designated beneficiary. The tax advantages vary according to the plan you choose. Donors should consult with a tax advisor for more information.
