Gifts of stock are always welcome, and the benefits of giving appreciated securities are significant. By donating stock rather than selling it, you can avoid potential capital gains taxes. In addition, you may receive an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift (assuming you have held the stock longer than 12 months).

Securities can be easily transferred from the donor’s account to the Foundation’s brokerage account following these instructions:

  • Click here to download a letter of instructions for your broker;

  • Email our Executive Director, Donna Hall, at to let her know the details of your stock donation so that we can mail you an acknowledgement letter for your taxes.

Many companies provide a Matching Gift program to employees. Some companies will provide a 100% match, thereby doubling the value of your gift.
