Gifts of Stock

One of the biggest tax advantages in charitable giving continues to be the double benefit donors get when donating appreciated assets to Niagara University instead of cash. By giving appreciated assets (like stocks held for more than one year), you'll get a charitable tax deduction for the full value of the asset and avoid any capital gains tax that would have applied if you had sold the stock and made your gift in cash.
