Donating Stock to Israel
Get more of your money to Israel, and save on capital gains taxes, by
donating stock to Israel
. Instead of cashing out your stocks and then donating those funds, you can provide 25% more to Israel by donating the stock itself.
We make it easy to donate securities and mutual funds. Learn how it works:
Let's say you purchased common shares in ABC Company for a cost of $1,000 and a few years later they now have a current market value of $5,000. You would have a capital gain of $4,000.
The chart below illustrates what happens if you sell the shares and then donate the after-tax proceeds and what happens if you donate the shares directly using IsraelGives.
By donating shares directly, you get a larger tax credit and give more to the charity you care about.
How can I donate stock?

You can transfer the ownership of the stock online, and you'll receive a fully tax-deductible receipt for the market value of the stock at the moment of transfer.
If you're an American, you'll receive the tax-receipt from America Gives, Inc., a US 501c3 public charity. If you're Canadian, you'll receive the tax-receipt from Canada Charity Partners, a Canadian charity. And if you're British, you'll receive the tax-receipt from UK Gives, a British charity.
1. This assumes a 46% marginal tax rate. For calculating capital gains tax, this rate is applied to 50% of the capital gain.
2. $4,080 represents the full value of $5,000 minus estimated tax of $920.
3. We charge a 3% fee, and your charity receives 97% of the stock value.
