Give a Gift of Stock and Help "Sustain the Wolf"

Through careful planning, a year-end gift can allow you to do more for causes you care about than you may have thought possible—and provide you with tax benefits. As you review your 2017 philanthropic donations, we hope you will consider making a gift to the Wolf River Conservancy. 

Gifting appreciated stock is one of the most effective means of tax savings available.  Benefits include:

  • The satisfaction of knowing your money is helping a cause important to you.
  • You avoid paying capital gains tax on the transferred securities.
  • You will be eligible to receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock at the time of the gift.

Make sure you have owned the securities for more than one year to qualify for these tax advantages. For your gift to qualify for a year-end deduction, the Conservancy must receive the securities by December 31.   In addition, your gift will be doubled as it will qualify for the “Sustaining the Wolf” Campaign.

For detailed information on making a gift of stock, please contact Barbara Kabakoff, Chief Development Officer, at barbara.kabakoff@wolfriver.org or 901-452-6500 x. 110.
