Donate Securities

Since the recent stock market rebound, there may be stocks, bonds or mutual funds in your portfolio that have appreciated in value. If you donate the securities directly to the Temple, rather than selling them, you can avoid capital gains tax and get a deduction for the full value of the shares if you itemize. To qualify, you must have owned the securities for more than a year. Call the temple office if you want to do this. Phone: 860/561-1055. You can also contact the Investment Committee directly by e-mail new-message24
