Give Stocks and Securities

The stock market has performed very well recently, and making a gift of appreciated securities to VFH may be a smart financial option. By donating stock you have owned for more than one year, you may be able to lower your capital gains and receive a greater tax benefit than with a cash donation, all while supporting VFH.
