Making a gift of appreciated stock or mutual funds allows you to make a lasting impact on the lives of refugees and others displaced around the world. You still receive the same income tax savings as if you donated cash but also the benefit of eliminating the capital gains tax, which can be as high as 20 percent. The process is as simple as instructing your broker to transfer the shares to USA for UNHCR's broker. This form contains our brokerage information: USA for UNHCR Stock Donation Form (PDF)
