Make a Big Impact with a Stock Gift

Gifts of stock are an easy way to make a lasting contribution to POST while realizing significant tax benefits. By donating appreciated securities held for at least one year, you can take a tax deduction for the fair market value of your gift and avoid paying capital gains taxes. POST can sell donated stocks tax-free and use 100 percent of your gift to support our land-saving work.
