When you donate stocks or mutual funds to Environmental Defence you not only protect the environment but receive significant tax benefits.
When you donate and transfer your shares to Environmental Defence, you will receive a charitable receipt for the full value of your shares. And, you will not be taxed on any of the capital gains associated with the sale of the stocks or mutual funds. The value of your charitable receipt is determined by the closing price of the shares on the day that they are transferred into Environmental Defence’s account. Environmental Defence’s policy is to sell publicly listed securities the same day that they are received into our account.
Please use the “Gift of Securities” form below to notify your broker and Environmental Defence of your gift of securities to support our work to defend clean water, a safe climate and healthy communities.
