How to Give
One of the biggest tax advantages in charitable giving continues to be the double benefit donors get when donating appreciated assets to The Bucks County Opportunity Council 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.
It is important to notify The Bucks County Opportunity Council of the specifics of this transaction (stock name, share quantity, gift designation) so we can credit your gift appropriately. Please contact us at 215-345-8175 x204 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
