Making a gift of securities is simple and offers a number of financial benefits:

You receive an immediate income-tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, no matter what you originally paid for them.

You pay no capital gains tax on the securities you donate to Calaveras Big Trees Association (CBTA).
When you donate your appreciated securities to CBTA, you are making a significant contribution to the protection and preservation of Calaveras Big Trees State Park.
