Appreciated Securities

When you give appreciated securities, you may receive an immediate tax deduction and savings on capital gains taxes. Your gift of stock or mutual funds can also be used to fund a charitable gift annuity. You can make a gift of appreciated securities to The Nature Conservancy while diversifying your portfolio and/or securing a stream of income.

For direct information about gifts of stock, please call (877) 812-3698 or email us today.

How it works
  1. You transfer securities to The Nature Conservancy.
  2. The Nature Conservancy sells your securities and uses the proceeds for its programs.
