Stock Gifts

Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide greater tax benefits than giving cash. Your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to the Clay Center. The following information will ensure that your gift is received and acknowledged appropriately.
