Planned and Investment Giving
Donating appreciated securities, such as stock or mutual funds, to Chasing Dreams is a tax-wise approach to providing much needed programs.
Many donors choose to make gifts to Chasing Dreams using long-term appreciated stocks or mutual funds due to the attractive tax advantages associated with such gifts.
The benefits available to you when making a contribution of stock or mutual funds may include:
- Avoiding federal and state tax on the capital gain
- Receiving an income tax deduction (federal and most states) for the full market value of the gift if you itemize deductions on your tax return and have held the assets one year or longer.
- Making a larger gift at a lower original cost to you

Give your employees the opportunity of giving back in a way that can most benefit the cause of their choice, as well as your corporate culture.
