Gifts of Stocks

Thank you for considering a gift of appreciated securities to Save The Bay.

Stocks held for more than one year that have grown in value are an excellent way to give. You receive a charitable deduction for the donation and avoid federal capital gains tax.

When making a gift of appreciated securities (stock, bond and mutual fund shares), your gift will be credited at the current market value and you may take a tax deduction for this amount. If you have held the stock for more than one year, you may also avoid capital gains taxes on the appreciation.

In order to properly credit you and your generosity, Save The Bay requires you to notify your broker, our broker and Save The Bay that a gift has been transferred. Due to privacy laws, many gifts of securities are transferred without a clear link to the name of the original donor. Without knowing who the donor is, Save The Bay cannot properly credit your gift nor provide you with a gift receipt for tax purposes.

Please follow the step-by-step instructions below or download them for your convenience. If you have any further questions, contact Maureen Fogarty at 401-272-3540, x109 or mfogarty@savebay.org

Dear Friends, Supporters and Community Members, 

At this time, Save The Bay’s facilities in Providence, Newport and Westerly remain closed to the public in response to COVID-19.

In keeping with statewide COVID-19 health and safety recommendations, and out of an abundance of caution, Save The Bay is “pausing” all seal tours for the remainder of 2020. We hope to welcome you back aboard our education vessels in the new year.

Save The Bay is offering limited volunteer opportunities with new policies and procedures for the health and safety of our guests and volunteers.

Our staff remains dedicated to working on our mission to protect and improve Narragansett Bay from home. As always, we are accessible via email (listed on our website), or on FacebookInstagram or Twitter.
