Donating Stock, Real Estate or Other Assets

Increase your potential impact—and experience significant tax savings—by giving non-cash assets. You can experience combined savings of up to 70% of your gift when you donate appreciated stocks, mutual funds and other non-cash assets.

When you give appreciated stocks directly to the Ryan Shazier Fund for Spinal Rehabilitation, your gift can be up to 20% larger because you avoid the taxes you’d incur from selling and donating the cash. This means more money going to the work that you support.

Gifting stock avoids federal capital gains tax, and most donors can also claim an income tax deduction for the stock’s full market value. (State and local income tax deductions may also be available in some areas.)

Give assets you no longer need or want to manage (such as rental properties or vacation homes) for the benefit of people recovering from spinal cord injuries.
