Donate Stock or Mutual Funds to Playhouse Theatre Group, Inc.
Why donate stock or mutual funds? Your deduction for a donation of shares of stock or mutual funds to charity is equal to the fair market value of the donated property. Thus a gift of appreciated shares that have been held more than one year, allows you not only to save on your taxes once, but twice. If you sell the appreciated shares on your own, you would have to pay capital gains taxes on the appreciation. By donating the appreciated stock, you avoid paying the capital gains taxes on the appreciation. You still get a deduction for the full market value of the stock donated, and Playhouse Theatre Group, Inc / Playhouse on Park receives the full value of the stock, and as a charitable organization we don't pay any taxes, when we sell it.
So if you plan to make a gift to Playhouse Theatre Group, Inc / Playhouse on Park and you have appreciated stock, take advantage of the opportunity to "double" your tax benefits: A charitable deduction, plus avoiding capital gains taxes on the appreciation in value of the donated shares. Even if you really like the stock and want to continue to own it, instead of writing your check to Playhouse Theatre Group, Inc, just send us the stock and write your check to your brokerage account to buy the same number of shares that you donated. You get the same deduction for your charitable donation of the stock, your holding don't change, and you raise your cost basis of your holdings providing tax benefits when you sell.
