Giving a gift of stock or appreciated securities helps KCPT and provides advantages to you.
By making a gift of stock to KCPT you will receive the satisfaction of knowing that you are enhancing the lives of people across our region by enabling the station to provide them with a lifetime of exploration and learning through the high-quality PBS programs you cherish so much.
You will also partner with KCPT’s Local Production Team to: preserve our local history for coming generations, strengthen our local democracy by engaging voters with important issues of the day, and stimulate involvement with local performers and artists.
You will also receive a charitable gift deduction. If you have owned stock for a period of time that has declined in value and you wish to sell it, donating the stock directly to KCPT will provide you with a tax deduction based on the fair market value of the security (an average of the high and low price of the stock on the day it is donated). If have owned stock over one year and it has increased in value, making a direct donation of the stock also saves you the capital gains tax you would have incurred by selling it yourself.
If you are interested in donating stock, securities, or leaving a bequest to KCPT, please call us today at 816-398-4276.
