Donations of Appreciated Securities (Stocks)

Using securities that have gone up in value since you bought them is an excellent way to make a gift to WNYC.

Using securities that have gone up in value since you bought them is an excellent way to make a gift to WNYC. In most cases you will be entitled to an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift and will not have to report capital gain income. You may use securities to make your annual gift to WNYC, contribute a special gift, or to fund a charitable gift annuity or charitable trust.

To assist you with the transfer of securities please contact Skylar Failla at sfailla@nypublicradio.org or 646-829-4482.
