Donations of securitiesallow you to help support your community and receive a significant tax credit. The benefits of donating a gift of securities to United Way are twofold. First, you will receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the donation in the amount of the closing trading price on the day United Way receives the security. Second, your donation is exempt from the capital gains tax that typically applies to the sale of a security.
