Gift of Stock or Security

Gifts of appreciated stock or mutual funds are another great way to give to the Foundation for Women’s Cancer. Please consult your broker and/or tax advisor. You receive an income tax deduction for the full fair market value of securities you have owned more than one year, subject to the usual limitation, and capital gains tax will be completely avoided on these assets. If you or your planners need assistance, please contact Sharon Krinsky, Director of Philanthropy at 312.580.1165 or email, skrinsky@foundationforwomenscancer.org.
