Gifts of Stock or Investments

Gifts of publicly traded securities that have appreciated in value allow you to avoid capital gains taxes while also receiving a tax deduction for your gift.*

To make a gift of stocks or securities, please provide your broker’s fax number or email address to receive instructions on how to transfer stock directly to the Ounce of Prevention Fund’s brokerage account.

To ensure that we correctly acknowledge you as the donor of the transferred stock, please provide the following information:

  • Donor name and contact information
  • The name of the stock
  • Approximate number of shares
  • Date of the stock transfer

* The Ounce of Prevention Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization. Contributions are deductible as allowed by law. Please speak with your financial adviser about the deductibility of your gift.

If you are interested in making a gift of stock, email giving@theOunce.org.
