  • Gifts of Stock

    Do you own long-term (held for more than one year) appreciated stock that is subject to capital gain?

    Since April of 2020, the stock market has soared, and this success may have generated substantial appreciation in your stock portfolio.

    If you choose to sell now, you may be subject to a significant capital gains tax liability. You can avoid this by making a gift of appreciated stock to Sierra Canyon School.

    Benefits of Giving Appreciated Stock
    • No capital gains tax on the appreciation.
    • Your charitable deduction is equal to the full current value of your stock gift to Sierra Canyon.
    • You support what is most meaningful to you at Sierra Canyon.
