Increase Your Impact and Save on US Taxes!
Stocks are classified as property in the USA, which means that donors do not have to pay capital gains tax on their donations!
This equates to paying less taxes on the appreciation of stock assets and more money going to TIST.
The difference can be as much as 20% more going to support TIST Farmers than if you sold stocks first and then donated the USD.
You can also add to this reduction in capital gains a deduction of the fair market value of your donation as long as the stock has been held for more than one year.
Stocks Donations Benefit TIST Farmers, too!
Donating stocks to TIST is a win-win for both the donor and for TIST Farmers.
As a donor, you legally avoid capital gains tax on your stock appreciation and get a larger deduction.
As the receiver, TIST gets a larger donation through our registered 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, The Institute for Environmental Innovation (I4EI).
By donating stocks today, you save on taxes and increase your positive impact!
