Giving Stock 

There are two ways to donate with stock. You can sell your stock and donate the proceeds, or donate the stock itself. By selling your stock first, your gain counts as income and might affect your total taxes. By donating stocks, you don’t recognize any income and you can write off the value at the time the gift is donated. As with all tax related issues, this decision should be made based on the advice of your tax adviser. For tax guidance, you can also visit the IRS website.

If you wish to contribute stock to Village Volunteers, please contact info@villgevolunteers.org,
or call (206) 577-0515 for more information.
