Stock Donations


Donating appreciated securities – such as stock or mutual funds – to Brookwood in Georgetown is a tax-wise approach to providing for our Citizens. Some donors choose to donate securities using long-term appreciated stocks and mutual funds due to the attractive tax advantages associated with such gifts.

The benefits available to you when making a charitable contribution of stock or mutual funds may include:

    • Avoiding federal and, if applicable for you, state tax on the capital gain.
    • Receiving a federal income tax deduction for the full market value of the gift if you itemize deductions on your tax return and have held the assets one year or longer.
    • Making a larger gift at a lower original cost to you.

Contact Tim Curtis at 512-887-1039 or tim@bigtx.org if you would like to discuss donating stock or mutual funds.  Also consult your tax or investment advisor.
