How It Works

  1. You make a gift of your closely held stock to the Preservation Foundation and get a qualified appraisal to determine its value
  2. You receive a charitable income-tax deduction for the full fair-market value of the stock
  3. The Preservation Foundation may keep the stock or offer to sell it back to your company

Benefits

  • You receive an income-tax deduction for the fair-market value of stock
  • You pay no capital-gain tax on any appreciation
  • Your company may repurchase the stock, thereby keeping your ownership interest intact
  • The Preservation Foundation receives a significant gift
