Other Ways to Give

Donate Stock or Mutual Funds

Donating appreciated securities—such as stock or mutual funds—to the Public Health Institute is a tax-wise approach building healthier, more equitable communities. Many donors choose to give gifts using long-term appreciated stocks and mutual funds due to the attractive opportunities for tax advantages with such gifts.

The benefits available to you when making a charitable contribution of stock or mutual funds may include:

  • Lowering or eliminating federal and state tax on the capital gain;
  • Potential for income tax deduction (federal and most states) for some portion of the entire value of the gift depending on tax rules;
  • Creating a legacy of supporting healthier and more equitable communities today with financial benefits that go into the future.
