With the latest statements enhancments release, Vision2 now provides stock details on donor statements.

In the Gifts of Stocks and Securities section of the statement, you will see a list of stock donations, that will include the date of the gift, the number of shares donated, and the name/symbol of the stock.

Please note: Per IRS regulations, stock entries listed on the donor statement will not include the monetary value of the donated stock. That information will be supplied to your donor by their brokerage firm for tax purposes.
