Do you own stock or mutual fund shares that have increased in value? Donating securities to the Epilepsy Foundation is a way to help us move closer to improving the lives of those living with epilepsy and ultimately finding a cure. Giving appreciated assets is one of the most tax-efficient ways to make charitable donations. If you transfer the shares before December 31st, you may claim the charitable deduction in the same year.
