Appreciated Stock

Strong stock returns and higher tax rates make donating appreciated securities to Janus Youth Programs an attractive tax-saving move. When you donate an appreciated security, you will avoid paying the capital gain on the sale. Additionally, the gifted stock allows you to deduct the value of the donation on your tax return. The general rule is that the deduction for property donated to charity is equal to the fair market value of the donated gift. As a result, the donor does not have to “recognize” the gain on the gift for tax purposes.

Talk with your broker and they can help you decide which security to donate to Janus’ donor account at Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC. When making a stock transfer, let Rosalie Karp, Janus’ Advancement Director, know so she can assure you receive a receipt for your donation. She can be reached at (503) 542-4605. 

Dave Jarman, Senior Vice President - Investments, Wells Fargo Advisors, can answer any questions you may have. Call him for assistance at (503) 603-2150.
