Stock Donation

Stock Donation

Donating stock or securities offers a number of benefits:

  • A federal income charitable contribution tax deduction based on the stock’s fair market value on the date of the gift (up to 30% of your adjusted gross income) if the stock was owned for more than one year;
  • Carryover of the deduction for up to five additional years if the fair market value of the gift is more than 30% of your adjusted gross income; and
  • Avoidance of capital gains tax that is due when you sell appreciated stock.

Note: Stock owned for one year or less is considered a short-term asset and usually won’t produce attractive tax benefits. Also, if stock has decreased in value, selling it and making a cash gift to the SPLC is probably more beneficial. You can take a capital loss on federal taxes and still enjoy a charitable deduction up to 50% of your adjusted gross income.

How to Donate Stock
  1. Give your broker the following information to transfer a gift of stock to Emmaus Ministries:
    • Emmaus Ministries’ brokerage account is with Morgan Stanley
    • Emmaus Ministries’ account number is 419-047011-201 and the DTC number is 0015

  2. Either you or your broker must notify our office at 773-334-6063 or with the name of the stock and the number of shares being transferred. This ensures the gift is properly credited and acknowledged.
