Stocks and Securities

The sale of appreciated stocks, bonds, and mutual funds can often create a significant tax burden at tax time. You can avoid this burden by gifting shares directly to ICR. Shares that have been held for at least one year can be given to ICR, providing significant tax savings by allowing you to deduct the full market value from income tax while also avoiding capital gains tax—a wonderful “double” benefit to both ICR and you.

Below please find information for transferring gifts of stock to ICR’s brokerage account. You can also access the information as a downloadable PDF. Please notify Chas Morse, Director of Donor Relations, of any stock gifts by calling 800.337.0375, or email This will assist ICR in properly accounting for and acknowledging your gift for tax deduction purposes.
