Making a gift to the ACLU Foundation of Massachusetts via stock, or other securities (such as bonds or mutual funds), allows you to have an immediate impact on the fight for civil liberties.
The total value of your gift is tax-deductible as long as it has been held for at least one year. There is no obligation to pay any capital gains tax on the appreciated value. And, the gift is fully deductible as of the date it arrives in our account.
