Gifts of Appreciated Securities

You can secure significant tax advantages by making a gift of securities – stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. A gift of stock held longer than one year allows you to avoid paying capital gains tax. You also receive an income tax deduction for the current market value of the gift – deducting gifts totaling up to 30% of your adjusted gross income in any year, with a five-year carryover for any excess. For more information please contact Rob Moir at 617-661-6647. Or you may email us at info@oceanriver.org

Please note your gift is not complete for tax purposes until securities appear in ORI’s brokerage account.  Act now to take advantage before December 31.
