Donating Stocks or Securities
The Parkinson’s Project accepts stock gifts through a simple stock transfer process
When you give the Parkinson’s Project a gift of stock that you have held for at least 18 months and that has increased in value, you:
- Claim a charitable gift deduction on your current year taxes.
- Don’t pay capital gains taxes you would owe if you sold it yourself.
- Don’t pay broker fees on the sale.
To receive the full tax benefit, it is very important that you donate your appreciated stock directly to Charles Schwab (our broker). For your convenience, we have provided a blank form to guide you through the process. Download Stock Transfer Form. After filling out the necessary information, give one copy to your broker and send a copy to the Parkinson’s Project:
