Donations of Stocks and Mutual Funds

You may have highly appreciated stocks or mutual funds that you are holding on to because you do not want to pay capital gains taxes. By donating appreciated investments to a qualifying nonprofit, including the Schumacher Center for a New Economics, you avoid paying the capital gains tax and can take a deduction for the fair market value of the investments.
