Once you have finalized the details of your securities gift with your advisor and Morgan Stanley, please call our office at (336) 691-0088 or email so that we can verify that your gift has transferred to our account correctly. We ask that you please request your brokerage firm attach a name to the transfer, otherwise the transfer may arrive at our office as from an anonymous donor.
Gifts of appreciated securities, such as stocks and/or bonds held for longer than six months, are fully tax deductible. This deduction includes the difference between what you paid for the security and its market value when donated. Such gifts are deductible annually up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income on your federal income tax return with the same five-year carry-over deduction provision as cash gifts. Remember that you must give the security itself in order to avoid paying capital gains tax on the profit rather than selling it first and then giving the cash.
