Donating Stock

Make a Meaningful Impact

Unlock the potential of your investments to support our mission of empowering and uplifting our community. Consider the often-overlooked option of donating securities—such as shares of stock or mutual funds, and bonds—to make a meaningful impact.

Imagine you invested in ABC Corporation years ago, and its value has since multiplied. By donating these appreciated shares directly to us, you not only contribute to our cause but also benefit from a charitable deduction based on the full fair market value of the stock, maximizing your impact at minimal cost.

To take advantage of this opportunity, ensure that your stock has appreciated in value and has been owned for at least a year and a day. Transferring the shares directly to our brokerage account avoids capital gains tax, amplifying the value of your contribution.

For stocks that have depreciated in value, it may be more advantageous to sell them independently and donate the proceeds. This allows you to claim a capital loss on your tax return while still supporting our mission.

When donating stock, its value is determined by the average of the high and low prices on the day of receipt, multiplied by the number of shares. Mutual fund shares are valued using the closing price for that day.
