Closely Held Business Stock

Closely Held Business Stock Diagram

How It Works

  1. You make a gift of your closely held stock to Lewis & Clark and get a qualified appraisal to determine its value
  2. You receive a charitable income-tax deduction for the full fair-market value of the stock
  3. Lewis & Clark may keep the stock or offer to sell it back to your company


  • You receive an income-tax deduction for the fair-market value of stock
  • You pay no capital-gain tax on any appreciation
  • Your company may repurchase the stock, thereby keeping your ownership interest intact
  • Lewis & Clark receives a significant gift
