When Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something to honor his love of wilderness. She remembered that, during his lifetime, her father valued The Wilderness Society's efforts to protect wilderness. So Sarah decided to make a gift to us in her father's memory using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at The Wilderness Society thanks to her special gift, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
