Donate Stock

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
