Make a Stock Donation
Your charitable gift of securities and/or mutual funds has the opportunity to be extremely beneficial to you and the 21,000 children, youth and families served by Beech Brook each year. When you transfer securities to Beech Brook, we then sell your securities and use the proceeds for vital therapeutic programs and services. In addition to knowing you are providing hope to children in need, you can also be assured that:
- Your gift will make a difference.
- You will receive a gift credit and an immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, no matter what you originally paid for them.
- You will not pay capital gains tax on donated securities.
- You have the option of making a significant gift now, or funding a life-income gift that benefits Beech Brook later.

Donate Real Estate
Gifts of appreciated property typically qualify for an immediate tax deduction and result in the avoidance of tax on appreciation. Property gifts can include personal residences, second homes, income property and vacant land.
The amount of the deduction for a contribution of real estate is normally valued at the current market value of the property. You should always consult with a financial professional or lawyer with regard to the tax implications of any gift.
Donations are deductible for income tax purposes to the extent allowed by law. The IRS does not allow or permit us to place values on your donations.
