Make A Gift With Stock
When you give $1,000 in cash, you receive a $1,000 deduction, which may save you $280 in the federal 28% bracket. Now, suppose you have $1,000 in mutual fund shares you bought five years ago for $500. If you sell the shares, you’ll owe $75 in capital gains tax on the profit (at the 15% capital gains tax rate).
If you donate the shares to Baystate Health Foundation, you avoid the $75 tax bill and the tax-savings you still get from the $1,000 deduction. Plus, you put the full $1,000 to work for a great cause (as a non-profit, we don’t have to pay tax on the profit when it sells), helping us deliver a higher state of caring to our patients and families.
You win. You help our patients win.
Make Baystate Health Foundation your charity of choice today.
