Gifts of Securities
You can have a direct impact on health care in Richmond by donating publicly traded securities. Giving gifts of securities such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds is the most tax-effective way to make a donation as well as ensuring our community receives the best in care, close to home.
If you sell your publicly-traded stocks that have appreciated in value, you are subject to significant capital gains tax. However, by directly donating your appreciated stocks to a registered charity, you pay 0% capital gains tax. In addition, you will receive a tax receipt for 100% of the fair market value on the day the transfer is received by Richmond Hospital Foundation. The resulting tax credit offsets other income.
Making a gift of securities is easy to do.
