Gifts of Securities

Why Give Securities?

Donating stock, bonds or mutual funds is an easy and tax-advantaged way to support Texas Children’s Hospital. Benefits of giving securities include:

  • You can avoid paying capital gains tax on any appreciated securities that you transfer directly to Texas Children's Hospital.
  • You may receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the appreciated securities (if held for at least one year).
  • You will provide immediate support for patients and families at Texas Children's

How to Give Securities

Contact us by email or call 832-824-6806 in order to receive instructions on how to transfer shares from your brokerage account to Texas Children's.

How Your Gift will be Valued

We value your gift of stock using the average of the high and low sales price for the date the gift arrives in our brokerage account, in accordance with Internal Revenue Service regulations. Mutual fund shares are valued using the closing price for the fund on the date of the gift.
