Stock and Bond Gifts

A charitable gift of stock or bonds can help make the dream of homeownership a reality for deserving family while also providing tax savings for you.

A gift of stock owned for more than one year entitles you to a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made. If the stock has appreciated, you also avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciation.

In addition to helping New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity fulfill its mission of eliminating poverty housing, you may diversify away from low-basis, long-term holdings into other assets that will better suit your needs. Please consult your qualified financial planner or attorney.

If you would like to discuss a gift of stocks or bonds, please email Jay Huffstatler at or call (504) 609-3332.
