The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle offers the ability to pay your pledge or make a donation with appreciated stock or securities and receive potential tax benefits by doing so.

If you have securities that have appreciated, you may gain tax savings from giving those securities when compared to giving an equivalent amount of cash. A gift of stock might let you bypass the capital gains tax that could be due if you sold the asset.
