Gifts of securities, stocks and bonds also provide considerable tax advantages when transferred to Boston Ballet before they are sold. If you have held your securities for more than one year, you may find that your gift will provide a twofold tax benefit, creating an income-tax deduction as well as helping avoid the capital-gains tax that would have been due on their sale.
