Gifts of appreciated securities offer a number of tax advantages over a cash gift: you receive a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities; at the same time you avoid capital gains taxes on the appreciated securities. The VHS has opened accounts with several firms for your convenience.
Maximize your contribution by participating in your employer's matching gift program. The VHS qualifies as a recipient of support from many companies. You and your company will be recognized for your company's matching gift.
