Planning for Year-End Giving: PART 2

Did you know that you can gift stock and avoid a capital gains tax? Stock can be gifted to ADL through your broker. Regardless of what your stock basis is, and the capital gain associated with the stock sale, you will NOT pay any tax on the sale of that stock if it is donated to ADL or a qualified charity. You will be recognized by ADL for the amount at the time of the sale as a donation. This can be a game changer for you and ADL!
