Gifts of Stock By transferring stock that has appreciated in value as a gift to Milwaukee Ballet, you may deduct the full market value of the stock without incurring a capital gains tax. If you own stock that is worth less now than when you acquired it, it may be worthwhile from a tax standpoint to sell the shares and donate the proceeds to the Milwaukee Ballet, then declare a capital loss on your income. Please contact the Development Office at (414) 902-2129, or your investment advisor, regarding a gift of stock.
Matching Gifts Many companies match their employees’ gifts to non-profit organizations. A matching gift could increase your annual donation to the Milwaukee Ballet by as much as 100%. In some cases, companies will match gifts from retired employees or spouses of members from their board of directors. Please contact your human resources department for information on matching gifts.
IRS regulations state the only portion of a charitable contribution that is tax-deductible is the amount that exceeds that fair market value of benefits offered in return. If you wish the full amount of your gift to be tax-deductible, you may waive your benefits by so indicating on your pledge card. A copy of the Milwaukee Ballet’s financial statements can be obtained by contacting the Development Office at (414) 902-2129.
