Gifts of Stock

Why Donate Stock?

Donating appreciated securities such as stocks or mutual funds is a smart and easy way to support STC. Just as with cash gifts, you will receive a federal income tax donation for the full market value of any securities you donate as long as you have owned them for at least one year. You may also avoid the capital gains taxes you would owe if you sold these securities.

Securities can be used for donations and annual fund gifts. Stocks and mutual funds may also be used to fund gift plans. There are many different ways to plan your gift to the Company, many of which can save you taxes now, reduce the tax burden on your estate, provide lifetime income to you (or another),  and provide a generous ultimate gift to the STC  For more information on planned giving opportunities, please contact STC’s Development Department at
