Donating Stock

At Early Childhood Alliance, we rely on donations to build better futures for children, and we can’t do this without you. Every dollar you give will allow us to reach thousands of families a year through our programming occurring at our three learning centers and childcare provider programming occurring off-site.

Donating stock, securities and mutual fund shares is a great way to donate non-cash assets to help Early Childhood Alliance provide education for children ages 0-5. Making this gift is simple and offers you valuable financial benefits:

Benefits of donating stock

  • You can donate appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds
  • The total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible
  • There is no obligation to pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciation

Valuation and Acknowledgement

The value of a gift of stock is based upon the mean between the high and low on the day you mailed your certificates or instructed your banker or broker to hold the securities. The gift is that mean price multiplied by the number of shared contributed to Early Childhood Alliance.

In accordance with Internal Revenue Service regulations, you will receive an acknowledgment letter to use for tax purposes. The letter will state the valuation of the gift at the time of transfer and confirm the designation (if there is one) of your gift.
