You can help Bayou Preservation fund its mission while circumventing taxes by donating stock.
Did you know you can donate long-term appreciated securities such as stock, bonds and mutual funds? And it’s easier than it may seem. When you donate the stock itself—rather than selling or liquidating the security—not only do you remove a step in the process, but you won’t need to remove the long-term capital gains taxes paid from the overall sum. This increases your donation amount up to 37% more. To transfer stock, either you or your broker fills out the transfer authorization form, and that’s all there is to it.
So remember, charitable giving doesn’t always mean cash. By giving stock, your support will have even greater impact. Give smart and save more by putting stock in something that matters.
When you include Bayou Preservation Association in your estate plan, you are taking proactive steps to protect everyone’s right to clean and health bayous, streams, ecological habits, and recreation for today and for generations to come. Thank you for ensuring that Bayou Preservation Association can keep fighting for our regions natural resources well into the future.
