Here is an example of how a larger gift will cost you less by donating stock instead of cash:
Matt has stocks currently valued at $25,000 that he purchased for $5,000 several years ago. This will result in a $20,000 capital gain if he sells the securities. He is in a 35 percent income tax bracket.
If Matt donates this stock to the Food Bank, both he and the organization will reap the benefits.
- Matt receives an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of $25,000, saving him $8,750 ($25,000 X 35%) in income taxes.
- Matt bypasses the $20,000 capital gain and in his 15 percent capital gains tax bracket, he saves $3,000 ($20,000 X 15%).
- Matt's total tax savings from both capital gains and income taxes is $11,750! And, the gift only cost Matt the $5,000 he initially invested.
