Transferring Gifts of Securities

Gifts to Mayan Hands Foundation in the form of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds that have appreciated in value may be especially attractive to you under current tax laws.

Why? When you transfer ownership of securities to Mayan Hands, you receive a charitable income tax deduction for their full market value, up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income, and you incur no capital gains tax (subject to IRS deduction limits).

Please alert us in advance about the type of securities and number of shares you plan to give. Your information will not be included with the securities transfer, so please contact us so that we can acknowledge your gift: email or call (518) 729-1900.

According to IRS regulations, the date of your gift corresponds to the date it arrives in our possession (i.e., for DTC transfers, the date the stock is transferred into our brokerage account).
