Gifts of Stock

Gift of Appreciated Stock

Stock market gains offer opportunities to do good work.

Gifts of appreciated stock are put to good use by the Bay Area Community Foundation. Your gift of stock is reinvested in your community, and qualifies for an immediate tax deduction based on the full market value. Through the community foundation, your gifts of stock avoid capital gains taxes that could be due as a result of its sale.  Your gift can be used to start a fund or build an existing fund, helping to benefit the causes you care about most.

To make a gift of stock, please call Finance Director Sue Jensen or President & CEO Diane Fong at 989-893-4438 to get started.
