Stock Donations

A charitable gift of stock provides donors the benefit of tax savings while generously supporting YES! Appreciation of stock value from time of original purchase is generally taxable. But a donation of stock to YES! provides YES! with the full stock value, without any taxes being payable, and leaves you with a considerable income tax deduction, as well. The most secure and expedient method of delivery for stock shares is the electronic delivery process, which provides efficient internal control as well as cost savings. However, you also have the option of transferring certificates directly. The following instructions are provided to help you facilitate a gift of stock.

Notification of Donor Intent

No matter which method is chosen for delivery of a gift of stock, the following information is required from the donor or the transferring broker, for audit and acknowledgement purposes:

Donor's name and complete address
Name and number of securities transferred
Broker's name and phone number
Approximate dollar value of gift
