Donate Stock or Property

Help protect the night skies for future generations and at the same time enjoy tax advantages by making a gift of stock to IDA!

What could be better than helping to preserve the starry nights, while also making a smart financial decision? By donating appreciated securities (stocks, bonds or mutual funds), you can reap great tax advantages.

If you transfer appreciated stock to IDA rather than first selling it, you may not have to pay capital gains tax on the sale, plus you may also be entitled to a significant tax deduction. As with any personal finance decision, IDA strongly recommends that contact your tax advisor or financial planner to discuss your options and possible tax and other implications.

For more information on donating your stocks, bonds or mutual funds, contact Susan Ciarniello at or 520.293.3198.
