Making Gifts of Stock

Thank you for considering a gift of stock to Marin Horizon School. Please see below for information and instructions for making your gift.

List of 3 items.

  • Tax and Securities Information

    In order to claim a deduction in this tax year, gifts received by Marin Horizon School must be postmarked by December 31. Gifts postmarked, and transfers occurring in the new year are credited accordingly. If you are giving securities, your broker can arrange transfer of stock from your account to Marin Horizon’s account.
    When securities are given as a charitable contribution, donors receive tax deductions based on the fair market value of the securities at the time the gift is made, therefore avoiding capital gains tax on the appreciated value of the stock. Gifts of appreciated securities are generally fully deductible up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income. Anything more can be deducted over the course of a maximum of five subsequent years, which can be subject to certain limitations.
