STOCK GIFTS

Giving stock is a great way to help Shannon's Hope efforts to continue in our mission to provide a loving, life-affirming home to pregnant women.

A gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value that has been owned for more than one year may provide greater tax benefits than giving cash. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock. Plus you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save by not incurring brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.
