Donating stocks, bonds, or mutual funds is a great way to support ԳٰDZí’s programs. ԳٰDZí accepts gifts of stock, bonds and mutual funds. Appreciated securities that you have owned for more than one year could qualify for a charitable income-tax deduction for the full fair market value. A direct transfer donation from your IRA could have additional benefits to you. Make sure to discuss these options with your tax advisor.
