Donating securities that have gained value while you’ve owned them is almost always smarter than contributing cash.


If you don’t give away the stock, sooner or later you’ll sell it, and your profit on the sale will be taxed.
But if you’ve owned those securities for more than a year and give them to a charitable organization, neither you nor the philanthropy owes capital gains taxes when the securities are sold.


You get to contribute more than if you’d sold your holding, paid the tax and donated the cash that remained. To get a clearer sense of how this works, you can discuss it with your Financial Advisor.
