Gifts of stock

There are two significant benefits to you, the donor, in making this kind of gift. In most instances, you are entitled to deduct the full market value of the stock from our taxes. You also can avoid paying capital gains taxes on the appreciated securities.

How do I make a gift of stock to EarthCare Fund?

Either you or your broker contact EarthCare Fund to inform us of your intention of making a gift of stocks. We will ask you to provide the following information:

Your name, address and telephone number
The name(s) of the stock that you are donating
The number of shares being donated

The simplest way to make a gift of stock to EarthCare Fund is through your broker. Most brokers can transfer the stock directly to EarthCare Fund. We will provide your broker with the needed information to make the transfer. If you prefer to send the actual stock certificates, please contact EarthCare Fund as well as your broker before sending the certificates since donation of stock certificates requires a special form to ensure that the transfer is accomplished correctly.

If you have stock that has gone down in value, you can still support EarthCare Fund. To maximize your benefit, sell the stock and contributed the proceeds to EarthCare Fund. In most cases, you can then receive a tax deduction and a capital loss deduction. To ensure that you qualify for this program, please consult your financial advisor about this and other tax-related matters.
