An Example of How It Works
When Sarah's mother passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for her. She remembered that during her lifetime she was always praising MBU for its tireless efforts to better her community.
Sarah decided to make a gift to MBU in her mother's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her mother's legacy live on at MBU thanks to the gift and a commemorative plaque, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
