Appreciated Securities

A gift of appreciated securities that you have held for more than one year is frequently the most economical way to give. You will be eligible to take a federal income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift for up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income and will not have to recognize the appreciation as a capital gain. See below for information about how to give securities or mutual fund shares to LRF:

Securities Held by Your Bank or Broker

Please notify your bank or broker that you are making a gift of securities to the Lymphoma Research Foundation and instruct your bank or broker to contact our Chief Operating Officer, Lisa Vogel, at (212) 349-2799 or for instructions. Please tell your bank or broker not to proceed until speaking with Ms. Vogel.
