Gift of Securities

Gifts of Securities Instructions

Giving securities is one of the most tax-efficient ways to give. Gifts of publicly traded securities bought over a year ago that have increased in value can be donated to Youth Villages. The donor is entitled to a charitable deduction of the value of the securities. In addition to the tax deduction, donors avoid all capital gains taxes. This makes for a double tax savings!

Please contact our organization via mail, e-mail, facsimile, or telephone regarding gifts of securities. If you have any questions, please contact Stephen Benskin at 901-251-4820. The facsimile number is 901-251-5001. If sending email, please use the Contact Us link on the left.

Thank you for your support of our organization.
