Donate Stocks and Securities

The gift of an appreciated asset is a powerful way to support the Coalition's work. While this giving strategy has many obvious benefits, no doubt the most important is the satisfaction of knowing that your gift helps thousands of homeless men, women and children in New York City!

Benefits You Receive from Your Gift of Stock

Your gift of securities will entitle you to a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize your tax returns. And in the case of appreciated securities, you may deduct the full fair market value of your gift once you have held onto the securities for at least one year. You may use your deduction up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income and are permitted to carry any unused deduction forward for up to five additional years. In addition, you will avoid paying capital gains tax on all stock that you chose to donate to the Coalition for the Homeless.

To make a gift of stock, you can authorize your stock broker or your bank to complete the transfer process. Please instruct your broker or bank to contact us at 212-776-2052 or
