There are many tax benefits to donating stock and other securities such as bonds and mutual funds to the Forest History Society. If you have held the stock for more than one year and it has appreciated in value, you could receive an even greater tax benefit than you would by making a cash donation.
Donating appreciated stock helps you avoid paying capital gains taxes that would otherwise apply if you were to sell the asset.
Donors receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the stock on the date of transfer.
The Forest History Society, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is the only international educational organization solely dedicated to preserving forest and conservation history and to bringing a historical context to environmental decision-making.
