Contributing a Gift of Stock
A gift of stock could have a greater tax benefit to you than a gift of cash.  Stock gifts are tax deductible at the market value on the day of the gift.  If the stock is given directly to the Portland Museum of Art, any appreciation during the term that you held the stock is not subject to capital gains tax.

We would be pleased to help you make a gift of stock to the Portland Museum of Art.  Our staff will work with you or your brokerage firm to make the necessary arrangements.
