CAPE G, Friday, March ff -  I2,T998 ," 38 .... CHEER suggests gifts of securities when planning simm0000:l Gifts of securities, such as stock, corporate and municipal bonds, certain government bonds and mutual funds, given to CHEER, may provide consider- able advantages to the donor and to CHEER. The donor pays no capital gains tax and the donor may use the fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift to compute the income tax deduction. CHEER re- ceives the benefit of the full mar- ket value of the gift. Appreciated securities. Gifts of appreciated longterm securities (those securities held longer than one year) can save the donor both income tax and capital gains tax.

St. Clair, in 1950, and by two sons,. Dale and James St. Clair. She is survived by two daugh- to five successive tax years. Depreciated securities. Securi- ties that have depreciated in value will most benefit the donor if they are sold first and the proceeds contributed to CHEER. The donor may then claim a capital loss for the depreciation. If the securities were given directly to CHEER, the gift income tax de- duction would be the same, but no capital loss could be claimed. Gifts of securities may be mailed or hand-delivered to the CHEER office or delivered through a stock broker. Valuation of gifts of stock. The value of the gifted stock is the av- erage of the high and low selling prices of the stock as traded on a major stock exchange on the date of the gift. For over-the-counter securities, the average between the closing bid and asked prices on the date of the gift determines the gift value. ters, Karen King of Linwood, Pa. and Kathleen Elliott of Harris- burg; a son, Lester St. Clair of Millsboro; a sister, Elenor Teter of Millsboro; a brother, Albert Grissinger of Harrisburg; six grandchildren; and nine great- grandchildren.

If mailed, the postmark date on the envelope, assuming it is re- ceived in due course and in nego- tiable form. If made through a broker, the date of transfer to a CHEER ac- count. The advantages of giving secu- rities are many. Here's just a few: Most donors will receive an income tax charitable tax deduc- tion for the full market value of the gifted securities.
