Making a Gift of Appreciated Stock

By giving appreciated stock directly to VCTF, you may avoid hefty capital gains taxes and also receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock at the time of the gift. It is important to check with your attorney or financial advisor in any gift planning to make sure that you are choosing the best way to achieve your personal and charitable goals. To make a gift of stock, please contact your financial advisor.
