Gifts of securities are particularly beneficial for the donor, as all capital gains taxes may be avoided and the donor may take a charitable deduction for the full market value of the stock on the date of delivery. Gifts of securities usually save more in your taxes than cash gifts.
The AACR Foundation accepts gifts of all types of publicly traded securities, as well as many types of private securities. Gifts of securities may be accomplished through a wire transfer or physical delivery of certificates.
If you have physical securities, you may deliver them in person, by registered mail, or by courier to the AACR Foundation offices. If they are registered in your name, you will need to provide an Irrevocable Stock/Bond Power Form.
Your broker can electronically transfer your securities. Please instruct your broker to transfer the stated securities or equivalent value to the AACR Foundation for the Prevention and Cure of Cancer, 615 Chestnut Street, Suite 1700, Philadelphia, PA 19106.
To make a gift of securities, please contact the Development Department at (215) 440-9300.
