Thank you for your interest in the work of the C.S. Lewis Institute and for considering a gift of support. One means of support you may want to consider is a gift of appreciated stock.
In most cases, gifts of appreciated stock offer distinct advantages for the donor as well as the Institute. Depending on your tax situation, gifts of appreciated stock donated directly to C.S. Lewis Institute can potentially be deducted at the full fair market value of the stock, thereby avoiding the payment of capital gains tax. On receipt of the stock, the Institute will sell it and derive the benefit of the stock's full value for advancing the work of discipleship of heart and mind.
Please consult with your tax advisor about your particular situation.
