Gifts of Stock and Appreciated Assets

  • You can transfer appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares you have owned for more than one year to Cape May County Zoo Society. The Society sells your securities and uses the proceeds for its programs.

    • You receive an immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer (even if you originally paid much less for them).You pay no capital gains tax on the transfer when the stock is sold.Giving appreciated stock can be more beneficial than giving cash. The "cost" of your gift is often less than the deduction you gain by making it. For more information regarding gifts of stocks please contact Gregg B. Reich 609-463-1062 or email gregg.reich@sturdyfinancial.com
