Making Gifts of Stock

If you are currently holding securities that have grown in value for more than a year, donating them to ProsperityME may be advantageous. If you own shares that are not generating much income, you can use them to help us continue our mission to empower, through education and counseling, members of refugee and immigrant communities to invest in themselves to build financial stability, careers, businesses, and wealth. 
 
An outright gift of stock at its present market value. This allows you to avoid paying any capital gains tax and gives you a charitable income tax deduction based on the stock’s fair market value (FMV). The income tax deduction is equal to the FMV, up to 30% of your adjusted gross income. Any excess of that amount can be carried over and deducted for five additional years, within the limitations of the law.
