  1. When you donate securities in lieu of cash, you do not pay any capital gains tax on the appreciation in the securities, while you receive a deduction for their full market value on the date of your gift.
  2. To transfer the securities electronically by DTC, please contact, or have your broker contact, the NAOP office at 202-223-9113 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
