Stock Transfer Gift

Benefits of Giving Stock
A gift of stock or other appreciated property entitles you to a tax deduction for the market value of the donated stock (not just your cost basis). If the stock you wish to donate has been held for more than one year, you can avoid capital gains tax on any appreciation of the stock by donating the stock prior to sale. The Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation benefits by selling the stock without paying taxes on the gain, and you benefit from making a contribution that would be larger than what you might have been able to donate in cash.

Transferring Stock to the Thich Nhat Hanh Continuation and Legacy Foundation
To donate shares of stock, electronically or by mail, please use a letter of transmittal stating your intention to donate to the Thich Nhat Hanh Continuation and Legacy Foundation and include the account information – account name and reference numbers - listed below.  Send the letter to our broker and to the TNH Foundation office at tnhlegacy@plumvillage.org to let us know that you will be making the donation.
