Donating securities can be a tax-wise way for you to support Environmental Advocates NY’s mission. In order to be fully deductible, the gifted securities must have been held by you for more than one year.


  • You can receive a charitable income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the donated securities.
  • You can completely avoid capital gain tax that you would owe on the difference between the cost basis, or purchase price, and the price at which the asset is sold.
