Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased value may provide greater tax benefits than giving cash. Your charitable deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock, and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value of the stock over the original purchase price. You also save by not incurring brokerage fees as you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.
