An Example of How It Works

John and his mother smiling When John's mother passed away, he knew he wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for her. He remembered that during her lifetime she was always praising DAV (Disabled American Veterans) for its tireless efforts to better the community.

John decided to make a gift to DAV in his mother's name using appreciated securities. Not only will his mother's legacy live on at DAV thanks to the gift, but John also qualified for a federal income tax charitable deduction and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
