Many individuals choose to make a gift to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America by donating shares of stock or appreciated securities.
If you are holding appreciated securities (stocks, mutual funds, etc), a large capital gain can turn an asset into a liability when it comes time to sell. There are many tax benefits to you when you transfer ownership to AFA.
