Make A Gift of Stock

Your gift of appreciated stock to American Jewish World Service offers critical support to realizing human rights and ending poverty in the developing world, while providing you with several financial advantages:

  • Avoiding federal and state tax on capital gains
  • Receiving an income-tax deduction for the full market value of your gift if you itemize deductions on your tax return and have held the assets for at least one year
  • Making a larger gift at a lower original cost to you

Please consult your financial planner or tax advisor to determine how these tax advantages might apply to your specific situation.
