Give a Gift of Stock
If you itemize your tax returns, securities gifts may allow you to have a federal income tax charitable deduction. Gifts of appreciated securities may provide additional tax benefits. To see if this is the best option for you, please discuss your tax situation with an attorney or accountant.
Metropolitan partner FreeWill, a free financial planning resource, makes it simple to get started. You can learn more about your potential tax savings, access our DTC information, and complete the necessary paperwork online to support Metropolitan Family Services and the communities we serve with a gift of stock.
