Stocks and Securities


Gifts of stock and other appreciated assets are valuable ways to make a contribution to PBS KANSAS and receive tax benefits based on the value of the assets. Appreciated assets have a higher market value than their basis or cost. Stock and other assets will, if sold by you or a non-charitable organization at a price higher than their basis, potentially generate taxable capital gains (either long-term or short-term, depending on the holding period).
If you donate an appreciated asset to the PBS KANSAS, you may take a charitable tax deduction, based on the current market value of the gift, plus avoid tax on any capital gains. PBS KANSAS will sell the asset, realize the full market value, and as a nonprofit organization, won’t have to pay tax on any capital gains. The proceeds directly benefit PBS KANSAS’ mission to education, engage, entertain and enrich Kansans.
