Donate Stock to BorderLight.

By donating appreciated securities to BorderLight, you help bring innovative theatre to Cleveland that inspires, builds cross-cultural understanding, and celebrates the diversity of the human experience.

What are the benefits of donating appreciated stocks?

Donating appreciated stocks that you have held for more than a year may provide benefits for BorderLight and for you, such as:

  • BorderLight can receive the full benefit of the appreciated stock's current market value.
  • You, as the donor, may be able to avoid capital gains taxes on the appreciation.
  • If you itemize deductions on your taxes, you may be able to write off the fair market value of the stock. 
  • The donation may help push you over the itemization threshold.
Note: This is not tax advice. To find out if your unique situation qualifies for these benefits, you should seek the advice of a qualified tax professional.
