Gifts of Stock
Why should I transfer appreciated stock? A gift of appreciated stock is a very attractive way to give to the Foundation. Not only does your gift help Bridgeport Hospital, but you may also realize a substantial tax savings. This is the most advantageous when you have owned the stock for at least one year and the stock has appreciated in value. Your gift of long-term appreciated stock will entitle you to a charitable deduction equal to the mean market value of the stock on the date of your gift, and you avoid capital gains tax on the stock’s appreciation. Please Contact Us directly to discuss such a gift.
