For stock held in brokerage accounts, your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to National Park Trust. Giving a gift of publicly-traded that has appreciated in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide better tax benefits than giving cash. Your charitable income tax deduction may be equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save on brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock. Always check with your tax advisor.
