Gifts of Stocks or Securities

Instructions for Making Gifts of Stock

Gifts of publicly traded securities that have appreciated in value allow you to claim a charitable deduction for the full market value of the securities on the date the gift is made. You pay no capital gains tax on the appreciation and Maryland Center for History and Culture receives the full value of the gift.

Donors may make a gift of stock by advising their financial representative to contact the firm below with the instructions for the transfer.
