By Giving Securities

Donors who give securities that have been held more than one year can realize two benefits: a charitable tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities, and avoidance of capital gains taxes on the appreciated assets.

Please note: The securities must be given to Tufts; if you sell the securities and donate the proceeds, you will not realize these same tax benefits.
