Give a Gift of Stock

A gift of appreciated stock to Girls on the Run-Chicago can benefit you in two ways: you receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities, and at the same time you may avoid capital gains taxes on appreciated stock. This helps stretch your gift even further.
