Gifts of Stock

Stock gifts are a financially savvy, mutually beneficial way to make a tax-deductible gift free from capital gains. If you own stocks or mutual funds that have increased in value over a year or more, you can maximize your support of LAMF while realizing important benefits for yourself.

When you make a direct transfer of appreciated securities to a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit, like LAMF, you can reduce or even eliminate capital gains taxes, and you may benefit from an income tax deduction as well. We receive the full value of your gift, allowing you to maximize your impact on the programs you care about.

Please fill out the brief form below to initiate your gift.

Notify us of your stock gift.
