Outright Gift of Appreciated Securities

Receive a Tax Deduction for Using These as Gifts

Securities and mutual funds that have increased in value and been held for more than one year are one of the most popular assets to use when making a gift to Save the Children. Making a gift of securities or mutual funds to us offers you the chance to ensure children grow up healthy, learning and safe while realizing important benefits for yourself.

When you donate appreciated securities or mutual funds you have held more than one year to us in support of our mission, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains taxes on the transfer. You may also be entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the fair market value of the securities at the time of the transfer.

Securities are most often used to support our work in the form of:

An outright gift. When you donate securities to Save the Children, you receive the same income tax savings that you would if you wrote us a check, but with the added benefit of eliminating capital gains taxes on the transfer, which can be as high as 20 percent.

A transfer on death (TOD) account.* By placing a TOD designation on your brokerage or investment account, that account will be paid over to one or more persons or charities after your lifetime.
