Giving stock is a great way to support Twin Cities Public Television! A gift of stock held more than 12 months offers two-fold tax savings.

First, you avoid paying capital-gains tax on the increase in value of your stock. Second, you receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift. Subtracting the tax savings from what you originally paid for the stock can result in a gift that costs just pennies on the dollar. This is an excellent vehicle for stock that has appreciated substantially in value.

Your gift of stock also brings with it tpt membership, with benefit levels corresponding to the amount of the gift.
