Five years ago Mr. Sequoia purchased 100 shares of FOREST Co. stock at $5 per share for a total of $500. The company has done very well and his 100 shares are now worth a total of $2,500. He consults his financial advisor and decides to donate his stock to Earthjustice. Mr. Sequoia, who is in the 28% tax bracket, avoids a total of $1,000 in taxes and feels that he has made a significant difference towards the protection of wildlands, public health and endangered species for generations to come.
