“Appreciated Securities” refers to publicly traded stocks that have increased in value since their original purchase. Donating appreciated securities to a charitable organization like the California Art Club can be a tax-efficient way to give, as it allows you to maximize your charitable deduction while avoiding capital gains tax on the appreciated value. Before making such contributions, it’s advisable to consult with a tax advisor for personalized guidance.
