Gifts of Stock

Donating stock or mutual funds protects the future of music.

You can make a gift of appreciated securities — publicly traded stocks, bonds and mutual fund shares — to the Colorado Springs Philharmonic while avoiding capital gains tax, diversifying your portfolio and/or securing a stream of income. It’s easy to do – simply fill out this form to get started!

For personal assistance, contact us at (719) 575-9632 or catherine@csphilharmonic.org.

How it works

  1. You transfer appreciated securities to the Colorado Springs Philharmonic.
  2. The Philharmonic sells the securities and uses the proceeds to fund its year-round mission of music and service.

Benefits

  • Receive credit and an immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value (average high and low prices on the day of the transfer).
  • Receive acknowledgement as a donor, plus all customary benefits offered to donors.
  • Avoid capital gains tax.

Please note that the securities you use to make your gift must have been held by you for more than one year to be fully deductible.
