Gifts of appreciated securities can enable a donor to deduct the full value of a gift, without incurring capital gains. If you are considering making a gift of appreciated securities, please note that in order to preserve your tax advantage, you should transfer the shares directly to Trevor, rather than selling them yourself. Prior to making any gift of securities, we recommend that you consult your tax advisor.
To ensure that your gift is properly credited, please contact Maggie Keith, Trevor Fund Manager, at 212.426.3329 or firstname.lastname@example.org
