Gifts of securities can be an excellent alternative to cash gifts. By donating your appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other securities to a ministry through The Orchard Foundation, you can avoid the capital gains taxes that would be required if you were to sell the security and donate cash. In addition, your gift of securities qualifies for a charitable tax deduction. Our staff at The Orchard Foundation has specialized training necessary to ensure that the transfer of your gift is done efficiently and in compliance with IRS guidelines – a complicated process made simple. Furthermore, we have a variety of brokerage accounts already set up, giving us the flexibility we need to provide you with comprehensive service.
