The benefits of Giving

Now, more than ever you can help us answer the Call to Care in so many ways.

 

As 2012 draws to a close there is still time to make a difference in the lives of over 11,000 men women and children in our area. Donating stocks, bonds and mutual funds helps us provide housing readiness programs to individuals in our homeless shelters, tutoring to children in our supportive housing programs, detoxification services to adults in our substance abuse programs and so much more. These donations also assist our donors in maximizing tax benefits.

Your gift qualifies for a tax deduction based on the full market value of your stock, bonds or mutual funds. Our donors who choose to make stock, bond or mutual fund donations also avoid the capital gains tax that would otherwise arise from the sale of these assets.

If you’d like to learn more about donating you stocks, bonds or mutual funds contact your financial advisor and email our Vice President of Development James Wynn (JWynn@voaches.org) to get started.
