Gifts of Stock and Other Securities

Making a gift of appreciated stock and other securities is easy. A transfer can be as simple as a phone call and a written confirmation. For tax purposes, your gift is considered complete on the day that you turn over control of the securities.

The value of the gift is its fair market value on that day, and you pay no tax on the capital gains. If the securities are traded daily on a recognized exchange, the value is the average between the high and low prices for that day.

For other options for transferring gifts of stock, please contact Wendy Jett, Foundation Director at (541) 463-5804 or foundation@lanecc.edu to discuss these in order to avoid complications.
