Donating Appreciated Stock
If you own stock with substantial unappreciated gains and you have owned the stock for at least one year, you may earn a double benefit from donating it.  The tax benefits include deducting the amount of the charitable donation and avoiding the unrealized gains on the donated stock.  Here's an example from CBS News: 

"Let's say you bought stock for $10,000 last May and today it is worth $20,000.  You plan to donate it to a charitable organization.  If you sold the $20,000 stock instead of donating it, you would pay capital gains tax on the $10,000 gain in value.  The tax rate for long-term capital gains is 15%.  Therefore, the tax savings for donating rather than selling the stock would be $1,500 (10,000 x 15%). 

In addition, you can claim a deduction of the market value of the donated shares -- the full $20,000 -- as a charitable donation deduction.  If you are in the 25% federal tax bracket, this could generate another $5,000 (20,000 x 25$) in tax savings. This brings your total tax savings to $6,500.  If you are in a higher tax bracket, your donation deduction will be even more.  Also consider this: you are giving a gift that is two times what it originally cost you."
