Make a Gift of Stock
When you make a gift of stock or shares in a mutual fund, you receive a deduction equal to their full fair market value on the day the shares are transferred to WPA. If you donate appreciated securities that you have held for more than one year, you have the additional benefit of paying no capital gains tax on the transfer.
Stockbrokers require instructions in writing. You will need to give the following delivery information to your broker to make a gift to WPA:
Firm: Alex Brown (a division of Raymond James)
Contact: Mr. Matthew Madlinger, 212.430.2460
ACCT: Women’s Prison Association
It is important to notify WPA when you intend to give the gift of stock or have completed your request to your broker. Please e-mail or call 646.292.7754.
Make a Planned Gift
Bequests can be made in the form of specific dollar amounts, other kinds of property, a percentage of the estate, or all or a portion of what remains after you have provided for your family. Certain kinds of planned gifts can provide donors with sizable income over a period of many years. Others can help donors (or their heirs) avoid or minimize capital gains, estate and other taxes. With the advice of a tax or legal professional, a planned gift can benefit donors, their families, and WPA.
For information about making a bequest to WPA, please contact us at 646.292.7754 or via e-mail.
