If you own appreciated securities (stocks, bonds or mutual funds held by you for more than one year), donating them to DFS Indianapolis may allow you to potentially reduce or potentially avoid more capital gains taxes and potentially claim a federal income tax charitable deduction.
You can also designate DFS as the beneficiary of your securities. Please contact your broker for more information about this simple way to support DFS. This type of gift can be especially appealing if you are holding shares that have appreciated significantly in value but yield a low dividend.
