By making a contribution of stock or long-term appreciated securities to the Polk State College Foundation, you get a two-fold income tax benefit – you can deduct the present fair market value, and owe no tax on the appreciation in value. If you wish to donate securities in which you have a loss, consider selling them instead and then donating the proceeds to us. That way, you will have a loss deduction to offset any gains on sales, plus you will still get your charitable deduction.
