Appreciated stock is a smart way to give. When you contribute stock directly to Winona Community Foundation you will avoid capital gains tax and still receive the full market value of the stock for tax purposes. Stock transfers normally take only a couple of days but may take longer during busy times such as the end of the year.
It is always best to contact us before making a transfer. This way we can ensure it is processed and acknowledged in an accurate and timely manner. The following information is all your broker or agent needs to know to complete a transfer from your account to that of the Winona Community Foundation.
