Gift of Stocks or Securities

Do you own stock that has increased in value? Have you owned this stock for more than a year? If you answered "yes" to both questions, we have good news for you!

You can amplify your impact by donating appreciated stock to Prairie Public. Many supporters of PBS and NPR member stations find that giving stock actually helps them do more than what's possible when giving cash.

Tax Savings

There's more! You can enjoy a double tax benefit when you donate appreciated stock. You may claim a generous tax deduction for what the stock is worth today as opposed to what it cost you many years ago. You will also avoid paying capital gains tax on the transfer of the stock. This would not be the case should you decide to first sell the stock and then donate the proceeds.

How to Give

Giving stock to Prairie Public is simple. By working with your broker, you can donate stock electronically or by registered mail. It's also possible to name Prairie Public as a beneficiary of your stock account(s) — a popular option for supporters who desire more flexibility.

If you have questions or would like our assistance in the process, please feel free to contact Troy Davis or call 800-359-6900, ext 510.
