The Hat Trick of Giving Stock
October 5, 2023
Three Ways You Score by Giving Appreciated Stock
“He shoots; he scores!” the announcer yells. Music blares, colorful lights flash and the crowd goes wild.
For hockey players, there’s nothing quite as exciting as achieving a hat trick—scoring three goals in a single game.
Less flashy, but almost as thrilling is the triple score of giving appreciated stock to CMDA. It’s a smart and powerful way to help bring the hope and healing of Christ to the world through healthcare.
When you give appreciated stock, you score three personal benefits:
- Give without restricting your cash flow,
- Receive a fair market value deduction at the time of your gift, AND
- Avoid taxes on the sale of the stock.
You may not hear any blaring music or thunderous applause. Still, you can celebrate knowing you’ve accomplished a profound amount of good in a tax-efficient manner.
Feel free to do a fist pump, or even skate a victory lap or two. We promise we won’t judge.
