Gifts of Appreciated Stocks or Property are particularly advantageous from a tax point of view, especially if you own appreciated stocks on which you would have to pay long-term capital gains tax. Since each tax situation is different, please consult your tax advisor about making a gift of stock.
If you have decided to give stock, the process is very simple: Ask your broker to electronically transfer the stock directly to the Roger Baldwin Foundation account at:
Vice President, Wealth Advisor
610 Central Ave, Suite 200
Highland Park, IL 60035
DTC number is 0226
RBF account # is WMP-004917
Important: please have your broker notify Ben Audley (312-595-6274) OR Daniel Kaspari (312-595-6558) of the transfer, the type of stock and the donor name.
