Why Give the Gift of Stock?

Giving stock doesn't just help the children we serve: It also helps you.

Using Stock to Reach Your Philanthropic Goals
If you are trying to reach a certain giving level, donating stock gives you the option to hit the goal without simply writing a check. For instance, reaching a $10,000 annual giving goal becomes easier by pairing a $5,000 cash gift with $5,000 in stock.

Increase Your Giving Power
A gift of appreciated stock to the Make-A-Wish Foundation can benefit you in two ways: you receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities, and at the same time you may avoid capital gains taxes on appreciated stock. This helps stretch your gift even further.

To find out if giving stock to the Make-A-Wish Foundation would suit your philanthropic goals, please visit Getting Started: Gifts of Securities.

Or you may contact Marilyn Hall at mhall@wish.org or 1-800-722-WISH (9474) x 3324.
