Give Stocks


Giving stock which has been held more than 12 months may offer you considerable tax advantages. You may avoid paying capital-gains tax on the increase of your stock and receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift. A gift of stock also brings you Alaska Public Media membership.

Stockbrokers require delivery instructions in writing. To make a gift to Alaska Public Media, you will need the following information:
