You can be a champion for kids with cancer. Consider donating your publicly traded stocks, bonds and mutual funds, and take advantage of tax benefits.
Why donate securities?
By donating publicly-traded securities, you avoid paying tax on your capital gains. The donation costs you less than if you sold the securities and then donated the proceeds. You will also receive a charitable tax receipt for the fair market value of the security.
Consult your financial advisor to decide which investments make the most financial and philanthropic impact, then ask your broker to transfer your securities to POGO by completing the Release for Securities Transfer Form.
Please notify POGO that a gift of securities has been initiated so that we know a gift is on its way!
