Give stocks or bonds

A charitable contribution of long-term appreciated securities — i.e. stocks, bonds, or mutual funds that have realized significant appreciation over time — is one of the most tax-efficient of all ways to give.

If you’ve held an appreciated stock or mutual fund for more than one year, you can donate those securities to Truthout and receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities, eliminating any capital gains assessments on the future sale of the securities (in some cases, more than 20%).

    By Jesse Mechanic, Truthout | Report

    While variations in temperature upward or downward occur naturally, over the last 400 months (or 33 years), the trend has been upward only, giving us our third-warmest April in 139 years. It's a trend that's impossible to ignore unless you are beholden to the world's biggest polluters, as this administration has clearly demonstrated it is.
