If you choose to donate stock that has increased in value and you have held the stock for more than one year, you pay no capital gains tax when you make the gift. You are entitled to a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock. The income deduction is limited to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. Excess can be carried forward for five additional years.
If you have stock losses, sell the stock and realize the loss to the extent allowed for tax purposes. Then, contribute the cash to the Junior League of Martin County and take the deduction.
