Donor Advised Funds

 

Gift of Appreciated Securities

Donating stock or other securities to the Path Association has its advantages:

  • The donor receives an income tax deduction for the full market value of the donated stock or security
  • Donors will avoid paying capital gains taxes on the appreciation of the value of the donated stock or security;
  • Donors will support the Mad River Path at a lower cost to them, as compared to making a cash gift; and
  • The Path Association will sell the stock without paying capital gains taxes and put the money to protecting the Path for future generations.

Before donating appreciated securities, you should always seek professional tax advice.
