One of the most advantageous ways to contribute to the Federation for Jewish Philanthropy is via a gift of stock, or other securities, such as bonds or mutual funds. The total value of your gift is tax-deductible provided it has been held for at least one year, and there is no obligation to pay any capital gains tax on the appreciated value. The gift is fully deductible as of the date it arrives in our account.
When your stock is received in the Federation for Jewish Philanthropy account, unfortunately, we do not receive any information that identifies you as the donor. Therefore we kindly ask that you please alert us in advance about the stock and number of shares you plan to donate. Please contact Michelle Scinto, firstname.lastname@example.org to assist you with your stock transfer.
