Donating Stock

Wistar scientist at workA donation of stock to The Wistar Institute will provide our scientists with the resources they need to advance their research, while at the same time providing you with substantial tax benefits.

You can deduct the full fair market value of long-term appreciated securities and avoid capital gains tax, and you can deduct gifts of securities up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income with a five-year carry-over option. Under certain circumstances, you can also qualify for a 50 percent annual deduction by reducing the value of your gift.
