Please consider gifting appreciated securities to YINR as payment for outstanding balances or as a new contribution. Donating shares of stock or mutual funds that have appreciated in value since their purchase affords you a charitable income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities at the time of donation and avoids the capital gains tax that would be incurred on a sale of these securities.
Please contact the office when you are donating stock to identify yourself, the stock listing symbol, and the estimated value. Any questions, please click here to contact the office.
