When Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising the Aquarium for its tireless efforts to better his community. To honor him, Sarah decided to make a gift to the Aquarium in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at the Aquarium thanks to the gift and a commemorative plaque, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
