Preserving the real places and the real stories of Texas.

Gifts of Stock

Gifts of appreciated securities and closely held stock can be extremely beneficial—both to you and to the Friends of the Texas Historical Commission. You may receive an income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities and reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes. Proceeds from the sale of these assets are directed to any program you wish. 

Please notify the Friends of the Texas Historical Commission in writing of your intention to transfer a gift of securities. Please direct correspondence to Friends of the Texas Historical Commission, PO Box 13497, Austin, Texas 78711.

To donate a gift of stock or if you have further questions, please contact Anjali Zutshi, Executive Director, at (512) 936-2241 or
