Giving appreciated stock may have significant tax advantage for you. These assets are given to WCA at the current market value, regardless of the cost or basis of the donor, which avoids the capital gains. WCA will liquidate the gifts as soon as possible after the receipt. You will receive a letter from WCA describing your gift. This letter is your tax receipt. Your broker or The Wall Street Journal can supply market value. Please contact your tax professional for the specific impact on your situation.
