A gift of stock or other appreciated securities can offer much needed support to Half the Sky while also offering you added benefits. By donating securities, you pay no capital gain tax and qualify for an income tax deduction for the full market value on the date of the gift.
Donating stock to Half the Sky is a simple two-part process.
First, please contact us via email or phone before initiating a stock transfer. Knowing in advance that you are making a gift of stock will prevent delay in processing and acknowledging your donation because we were not able to recognize you as the donor. Include the following information in your email:
- name of security
- number of shares
- broker or bank name
- date gift initiated
Next, contact ( or have your broker contact) Eric Susantio at UBS in San Jose, CA, USA at +1 408/282-8456 or via email.
