Transferring securities to the Tax Foundation allows you to make a gift and receive a charitable deduction equal to the full, fair market value of the securities. You pay no capital gains on your gift and neither does the Tax Foundation.
The best method of transferring these assets to the Tax Foundation is to contact your broker and electronically transfer them from your account to the Tax Foundation’s account. Avoid selling the assets and then making a gift of the proceeds, because this will trigger a capital gains liability for you.
In order for the Tax Foundation to acknowledge your gift and provide you with an IRS receipt, please take the following steps:
The following information, to be provided to your broker, will expedite the transference process:
Clearing Information: Vanguard
Tax Foundation Account Number: 33234409
Tax Foundation EIN: 52-1703065

By establishing a charitable gift annuity with the Tax Foundation, you’ll receive annual income for life at higher rates than available through most CDs and savings accounts.
The income you receive is based on the gift amount and your date of birth (designed for persons of retirement age). You receive dependable income for life and a tax deduction reducing your income taxes. And, your gift will help make the Tax Foundation even stronger in our fight to support sound tax policy.
