Appreciated Stock & Holdings

While cash gifts are the most popular type of charitable contribution, an even more tax-friendly way to support Mission Hospital through the Foundation is through gifts of appreciated holdings. Such holdings include:

  • Securities (stocks and bonds)
  • Property (real estate and personal property, such as art)
  • Retirement plans
  • Business interests (partnerships, C corp., S corp.)

Donors who give appreciated holdings to Mission Foundation not only receive a charitable deduction on their income taxes but also avoid taxes on the capital gains portion of their donated assets.

In essence, a donation of $10,000 of an appreciated holding, such as shares of stock, offers greater tax savings than a donation of $10,000 in cash.
