LEAVE A LASTING LEGACY 

DONATING STOCK & CRYPTO TO MAGICAL BRIDGE

Let your charitable dollars make a bigger impact by donating appreciated assets to Magical Bridge Foundation.

THE TAX BENEFITS OF DONATING STOCK & CRYPTO

Donating long-term appreciated assets like shares of stock, mutual funds, index funds, or even cryptocurrencies, can increase the amount of money received by the charity while reducing the tax burden for the donor.

  1. Avoid capital gains taxes. As long as you've owned the asset for more than a year and it has appreciated in value, you'll avoid paying capital gains taxes and receive a tax deduction for the full market value of the stock in the year it was donated.

  2. Deduct the asset’s fair market value. When you donate appreciated assets to charity, you get a deduction based on the full market value of that asset today.

  3. It’s a win for charities too. Charities don’t have to pay capital gains taxes. That means they receive the full value of the asset. You get the full deduction and they benefit by receiving your entire donation amount.

Our partner Daffy has free calculators to help you estimate how much you can save by donating stock or crypto.
