Make a Gift of Stock

One of the most advantageous ways to contribute to the Nashville Symphony is through a gift of stock. Making a gift of securities is simple and offers numerous financial benefits:

  • You can donate appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds.
  • The total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible.
  • There is no obligation to pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciation.

Contact your broker or financial adviser and the Symphony today! Gifts of securities may be counted as Annual Campaign or Endowment gifts.

Please note:

  • Be certain to notify the Symphony of your/your client's stock gift. Stock donations transferred directly to our broker arrive in our account with no donor information. For the Symphony to provide a receipt for a stock gift, it is essential that we know the donor's name and address as well as the type of stock, number of shares and expected date of transfer.
  • Receipts for stock gifts, provided that we have the donor's contact information and gift details, are generally sent during the first week of the month following the month in which the stock transfer took place.
