Gift of Appreciated Stock

Everybody wins when you make a gift of appreciated stock to the Fort Scott Area Community Foundation. Your gains are put to good use. Your gift of stock is reinvested in your community and it qualifies for an immediate tax deduction based on the full fair market value.

How it works

  1. You make a gift of appreciated stock to the FSACF.
  2. Your gift can be placed into any of our charitable funds. For example, you can use your gift to create a Donor Advised Fund in your name, in the name of your family or business, or in honor of any person or organization you choose. You can then stay involved in recommending uses of the fund.
  3. Your gift qualifies for a tax deduction based on the full market value of your stock; you avoid the capital gains tax that would otherwise arise from the sale of this stock.
  4. We handle all the administrative details.
  5. Your gift can be placed into an endowment that is invested over time. Earnings from your fund are used to make grants addressing community needs. Your gift - and all future earnings from your gift - is a permanent source of community capital, helping to do good work forever.
