Donating stocks

Making a gift of appreciated stocks

Our council gratefully accepts gifts of stock as an alternative to cash donations. Donations of appreciated stock offer some of the largest tax savings to donors, generally allowing you to avoid capital gains tax and deducting the current full market value of the stock. Additionally, due to the discretionary nature of stocks, donors are often able to make larger gifts with greater impact when donating stock.

By making a gift to the Capitol Area Council Boy Scouts of America through your appreciated stock donation, you’ll help develop future generations of leaders and citizens across the 15 counties we serve in Central Texas. 100% of all stock gifts stay local.
