You can transfer appreciated securities to TMHA and TMHA will sell those securities and use the proceeds for the purpose you specify.
You receive gift credit and an immediate income-tax deduction for the fair market value of the stock or securities—no matter what you originally paid for them. PLUS: you pay no capital-gains tax on the securities you donate.
It's easy. To make a stock gift contact your brokerage firm and instruct them to wire transfer a specified number of shares from your account to:
