When you make a donation to OAS through stocks, you receive gift credit and an immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, no matter what you originally paid for them. You pay no capital gains tax on the securities you donate. You can direct your gift to a specific fund or purpose. Gifts of stock are this easy. You transfer securities to OAS. OAS sells your securities and uses the proceeds for programs. You or your broker can contact Devin Harrigan at Ascent Capital Management, Devin@ascentcap.com, 541-382-4847 to coordinate.
