Gift of Securities
Gifts of stocks, bonds and mutual funds that have increased in value (and that you have owned for more than one year) are a great way to show your support while receiving even greater tax benefits than giving cash. With certain limitations, you can deduct the full fair market value of long-term appreciated securities and usually avoid the tax on the gain. Contact us directly or have your broker call the VYOA for more information on making a gift of securities.
Memorials & Honoraria
Gifts made in memory of a loved one or in honor of a special occasion can be a meaningful way to support the ongoing work of the VYOA. (One of our alumni was recently married and asked her guests to donate to the VYOA in lieu of sending wedding gifts. In a matter of weeks this wonderful gesture raised more than $1,200).
