Gift of Securities
Giving appreciated securities is an easy way to contribute to AHLA. The bounce back in the stock market means many long-term stocks are highly appreciated and worth much more than in previous years. Depending on your basis, profit from selling the stock could be heavily taxed. Instead of selling your stock and donating the proceeds, you may be able to make an even greater gift and reap the tax benefits by gifting a security to AHLA and avoiding paying a hefty capital gains tax. These gifts are generally tax-deductible at their full value on the transfer date, when owned for more than a year. Consult your tax advisor before making a gift of securities versus cash.
Stock or securities should not be sold by you, rather sent to AHLA properly endorsed with a certificate of transfer.

You designate AHLA as the beneficiary of your asset by will, trust or beneficiary designation form. A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an advisor, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to family, friends or AHLA as part of your estate plan.
A retirement asset, such as an IRA account, makes an excellent bequest to AHLA. If the IRA were given to your family, much of the value may be lost through estate and income taxes. By designating AHLA as the beneficiary of all or part of your IRA (using a beneficiary designation form provided by your custodian), the full value of the gift is transferred tax-free at your death and your estate receives an estate tax charitable deduction which may be higher than the amount they would receive from receipt of the IRA.
