Gifts of Business Interest

You can use your interest in a closely held or family business to make a difference for children around the world.


How it works

  1. You give closely held stock or convey a business interest to World Vision.
  2. World Vision offers the interest back to the company for redemption or sells it to a third party(depending on circumstances).
  3. World Vision uses the proceeds for its programs around the world.


  • Receive an immediate income-tax deduction for the appraised value of your donated interest. (The deduction on some assets may be reduced, subject to IRS rules.)
  • Avoid capital gains tax on any appreciation that has taken place in the shares.
  • Invest in the lives of children around the world.
