The benefits of donating stock to charity

Make a bigger impact

When you give long-term appreciated stock directly to RAN, no capital gains tax is due. The entire value of your shares is your gift. This means more money goes towards the work to save forests, stop climate change, and protect human rights.

Save capital gains tax

When you give stock you avoid federal capital gains tax. Many donors can also claim a charitable deduction for the stock’s full market value, and additional state and local income tax deductions may also be available.

It’s quick and easy

Whether you do it yourself, or get support from a financial advisor, donating stock takes as little as ten minutes.
