One of the most advantageous ways to contribute to MSF is through a gift of stock. Making a gift of securities is simple and offers a number of valuable financial benefits:
- You can donate appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds
- The total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible
- There is no obligation to pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciation
To contribute stocks see our 2-step instructions below. If you have questions or need additional information please contact William Donas in the Donor Services department at 212-847-3158.
If you reside in Canada, please visit www.msf.ca.
