Gifts of Stock

Giving appreciated stock and other securities is simple. Transfers can be as quick as a phone call and a written confirmation since our Foundation has accounts with most major brokerage firms. The gift value is fair market value on that day, and you pay no tax on capital gains. Please review the helpful forms below for more info.

You can give now through payroll deduction or later with a planned gift.
