Giving Stocks

Thank you for your interest in supporting Pathways through a gift of stock. By making a gift of appreciated stock, you are able to make a charitable gift to Pathways and bypass capital gains taxes. To make gifts of appreciated assets, you must have owned them for at least one year and a day. Such gifts are deductible up to 30% of adjusted gross income in the year of the gift. Any unused deduction amounts may be deducted over as many as five subsequent tax years. Please note that it is usually to your advantage to donate appreciated stock rather than selling it and donating the proceeds. Please check with your financial advisor for more information.

Publicly Traded Stock

Appreciated stock that has been held longer than one year should be transferred directly to Pathways. Your deductible gift amount will be the average of the high and the low value of the stock on the date when you made the transfer, times the number of shares transferred. When you transfer appreciated stock directly to Pathways, you do not incur capital gains.

If you wish to make a gift of appreciated stock, please call your broker and ask them to transfer your stock to the Pathways account. Please contact for account information.

Closely Held Stock

Please contact for more information.

Consider Making a Charitable Bequest

A bequest to Pathways in your will is a creative way to make a thoughtful gift. A bequest is a distribution from your estate that may be made through a gift of cash, marketable securities, closely held stock, or real estate. You may be able to significantly reduce your taxable estate when you make a charitable bequest because tax laws grant an unlimited estate tax deduction.
