Stocks, Mutual Funds & IRA Gifts

The Opportunity Council accepts gifts of securities including stock, bonds and mutual funds.  You are entitled to take a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the appreciated securities held longer than one year.  In addition, you will likely avoid paying the capital gains tax if securities were sold.

The Opportunity Council also accepts gifts from IRA distributions.  Please consult your tax advisor with questions about IRA distributions.

Please contact the Development Office at 215-345-8175, ext.204 or by email at jcuozzo@bcoc.org if you would like to make a donation.
