About Stocks and Donor-Advised Funds

A gift of appreciated securities provides benefits like an immediate charitable deduction for the full market value of the stock and avoidance of capital gains taxes that would normally be due upon sale.

Donor Advised Funds allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time. You can direct a gift to the Nashville Public Library Foundation directly from your donor advised fund.
