When you make a donation to Idaho Public Television via appreciated securities, you might receive an immediate tax deduction and savings on capital gains. 

When securities have decreased in value, it may be advantageous to sell the securities and then make a cash contribution. You may then be able to claim tax benefits for the capitol loss as well as the value of the contribution.

To maximize the benefit of your gift, please contact your tax professional or financial advisor.
