In the United States, donors benefit from special tax rules when giving appreciated stock shares to a qualified charitable organization. In most situations, the current tax code allows the donor to claim a deduction for the full market value of the stock shares at the time of donation without paying capital gains tax on the value appreciation.
Empower Playgrounds, Inc. is a registered 501(c)3 public charity with the Internal Revenue Service, so donating stock is great way to help children in Africa. To make it convenient for donors to contribute appreciated stock shares, EPI maintains a brokerage account with Zion’s Direct, a service of Zion’s Bank. Any stock donation is immediately sold for cash and the money is moved to a high interest savings account.
If you are considering making a stock donation to EPI, we welcome your correspondence.
At this time EPI is not set up to receive other in-kind donations such as precious metals or used automobiles.
