Did you know by donating stock that has appreciated for more than a year, you may actually be giving 20% more than if you sold the stock and then made a cash donation? Your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to the Nebraska Public Media Foundation.

Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock, and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save by not incurring brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.

If you would like to support public media in Nebraska by donating stock, please inform Nebraska Public Media of stock transfers in advance so that we can alert the fund manager of your incoming stock donation, properly acknowledge your gift and forward information regarding your tax deduction.
