Give a Gift of Stock.
If you have stock that you bought more than a year ago, and it has appreciated in value, you can transfer the shares directly to a Girls Inc. Westchester new brokerage account at TD Ameritrade, and you will receive a charitable contribution deduction of the full fair market value of the stock. After the transfer, you do not have to realize any gain or pay any tax on the transfer of the stock. Everybody wins! For more information, please contact Sally Baker or (914) 419-0764.
