Gifts of Marketable Securities
An outright gift of appreciated marketable securities is one of the most attractive methods of giving. Provided you have owned the securities for more than one year, a gift of listed stocks, bonds or other publicly traded securities entitles you to a charitable income-tax deduction equal to the full market value of the securities; this is calculated by averaging the high and low selling prices on the date of the gift.
