Gifts of stocks to Toxic-Free Future can be a tax-wise contribution. If you own stock that has appreciated in value and would like to sell it, you would ordinarily pay capital gains taxes on the increased value. However, if you donate the stock to a charitable organization, it is exempt from taxation. Your donation will support Toxic-Free Future’s critical work, and you will be able to deduct the stock at its full market value.

In order to promptly and accurately credit a stock gift to the appropriate donor, it is essential that the transfer instructions include your name and address.
The value of a stock gift is calculated by averaging the high and low quoted selling prices for the stock on the day of the transfer. Once your stock is received in our account, we will send you an acknowledgment letter which will include the value of the gift and the valuation date.
