Tax Benefits Illustration

 

Example: The Browns own stock that they purchased several years ago for $2,000 that is now worth $10,000. They want to establish an endowment for the benefit of missions and are considering whether to give cash or the stock. Their advisor told them that, based on their 28% income tax bracket, they would have to pay a 15% federal capital gains tax on the $8,000 increase in value should they sell the stock.

 

The following chart shows the net results for three options the Browns have for funding their endowment:

Give $10,000
