Stock/Securities Donations

Stock/Securities Donations

Make a gift of stock or securities to BBRF

Making a donation of securities is a tax-wise way to support brain and behavior research:
A gift of appreciated securities might provide tax advantages far greater than a gift of cash.  When you transfer ownership of stock held long-term (a year and a day) you may be eligible to receive a charitable deduction for their full market value of the security and incur no capital gains tax.  Of course, you should consult with your tax advisor before making any gift of securities.

IRA Charitable Rollovers

What should I know about the permanent IRA Charitable Rollover?

As part of the recently passed Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015, individuals age 70½ or older can make tax-free distributions directly from their Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) to qualified charities, such as the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, for up to a maximum of $100,000 per year. The Act authorized a permanent extension of the IRA Charitable Rollover. An IRA Charitable Rollover gift may fulfill part or all of your required minimum distribution. We recommend that you discuss this special tax incentive with your income tax professional for further details. For further information, please contact the Foundation at 800-829-8289.

Thank you for supporting the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation.
