Opportunity #2

Gifts of appreciated stock or mutual fund shares, for which you may be eligible for substantial tax benefits, including: exemption from capital gains tax on the gifted shares and an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair-market-value of the stock at the time of transfer up to 30% of your AGI.

If while in consultation with your personal financial adviser, you decide to give through either one of these opportunities, we encourage you to initiate the request as soon as possible. This will ensure that your gift is received in time to count for the tax year ending December 31st!
