How to Make a Gift of Stock
Making a gift of stock to John Tracy Clinic is easy to do, and can provide significant tax advantages for many donors. In most cases, you will receive an income tax deduction based on the full market value of the stock on the day that John Tracy Clinic receives it. In addition, you can avoid capital gains taxes that you would pay on the appreciated value of the stock if you were to sell it yourself and make a gift of the proceeds to John Tracy Clinic.
