Gifts of Appreciated Stocks and Securities

How it Works

You transfer appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares you have owned for one year or more to Far East Broadcasting Company. Far East Broadcasting Company sells your securities and uses the proceeds Where Most Needed or to support the program you choose.


You receive an immediate income-tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, no matter what you originally paid for them.

You pay no capital gains tax on the transfer.

In some instances, giving appreciated stock could be more beneficial than giving cash.

How do you know this gift is right for you?

A gift of appreciated securities may be right for you if…

You’re holding stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares that have increased in value.
You want to make a gift that doesn’t affect your liquidity or cash flow.
You want to diversify your assets to increase your income without having to pay capital gains taxes resulting from a sale.
