Gifting Securities

Donating appreciated stocks or mutual funds held longer than one year are generally exempt from capital gains taxes and entitles the donor to a tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities at the time of transfer. For your convenience, you can download and fill out a Letter of Authorization. Supply your stock broker with this information and send a copy to BAGI at

Please consult with your tax adviser regarding your specific situation, and whether this option is appropriate for you. 

Honoring A Loved One

Your 100% tax-deductible gift is a wonderful way to honor or memorialize someone. Your employer might provide a matching gift to the contributions you make to BAGI. Check with your employer and you might be able to double your donation. BAGI is also able to accept gifts of appreciated stock.

Contributions of $1,000 or more will be acknowledged on our donor wall and attest to your support of BAGI.
