Make a Stock Gift

stock market art Gifts of appreciated stock can yield tax benefits because they are deductible from your income tax at fair market value. This type of gift avoids capital gains tax that would otherwise result from selling the stock and then using the cash to make your gift.

Gifts of appreciated assets are deductible in amounts up to 30% of adjusted gross income, and any excess deductions may be carried over for use in the future. Stock transferred in this fashion is valued on the date of the transfer.

To donate stock to Earthrise Law Center, please follow the instructions on the Lewis & Clark online stock giving form. Under Gift Designation, check “Other” and specify Earthrise under “Special Instructions”. Call us today at (503) 768-6652 with any questions.
