Making a gift to the ACLU Foundation of Delaware via stock, or other securities (such as bonds or mutual funds), allows you to have an immediate impact on the fight for civil liberties.

Gifts of appreciated stocks or property are particularly advantageous from a tax point of view, especially if you own appreciated stocks on which you would have to pay long-term capital gains tax. Because each tax situation is different, please consult your tax adviser about making a gift of stock.
