Gifts of Stock

A stock gift is truly an investment that pays its dividends in giving children healthier futures. Your gift of stock or appreciated securities can provide much-needed support for patient care, biomedical research, or health and education initiatives at Nemours, while at the same time offering significant tax benefits to you.

Benefits to You

  • 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.
  • You have the satisfaction of making a significant gift now or funding a life-income gift that benefits Nemours later.

Steps for Transferring Stock

You transfer stocks or securities to Nemours. Then Nemours sells your stocks or securities and uses the proceeds for its programs. The Nemours Fund for Children's Health appreciates your generosity in support of children's health.
