Donating Stocks or Mutual Funds

Donating appreciated securities – such as stocks or mutual funds – to Philadelphia READS is a tax-wise approach to making a big difference in our community! Some donors choose to give gifts using long-term appreciated stocks and mutual funds due to the attractive tax advantages associated with such gifts.  While we recommend consulting legal or tax professionals for specific information regarding your individual situation, please feel free to contact us for additional guidance.
