Double Your Tax Benefits By Donating Appreciated Stock

If you traditionally give cash to your favorite nonprofit at year end, consider this: higher tax rates and strong stock returns make donating stock an especially attractive tax-saving move. Many stocks in the last year have posted strong returns. And with higher tax rates, investors face paying increased capital gains tax on their investments if sold. 

Making a donation of stock can double your tax benefit. If you donate an appreciated security, you will avoid paying the capital gain on the sale. In addition, 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 that gift for tax purposes.

Janus Youth Programs is equipped and ready to receive your stock donations. Just tell your broker you wish to donate stock to Janus and they can help you decide which security to transfer to our donor account at Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC. 

Our stock donation account is as follows:

   Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC
   For the Benefit of Janus Youth Programs
   DTC #0141
   For account number contact Rosalie Karp at (503) 542-4605

Rosalie Karp, our Advancement Director, can assist you in making the transfer. She will need to know what is to be donated so Janus can properly receipt your gift. Call her for assistance at (503) 542-4605.

In addition, Lindsey Adegbite, Registered Client Associate with Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC, can answer any questions you may have. She can be reached at (503) 603-2151.

Remember, it is wise to consult with your tax advisor when contemplating gifting money or property. Visit our Stocks & More Ways To Give page for more information.

Employee Spotlight—Terrell Berry

Every day, homeless youth struggle to survive on the streets. Terrell Berry, Outreach Specialist for our Washington State Program knows what it feels like—he was once one of them. Growing up in Long Beach, California, he and his family faced bouts of homelessness. This experience led him to study sociology in college and later, provided him with the insights needed to work with at-risk youth. According to Bettina Boles, Program Supervisor for The Perch and Yellow Brick Road, WA, “Terrell is a caring listener and attuned to the empathetic needs of the youth that he works with. His unique style creates an ease for youth to engage with him, which is just a small part of what makes him such an awesome Outreach Specialist.” We talked to Terrell to find out more about how he is serving our youth in SW Washington.
