You Can Change a Child’s Life With A Donation of Stock

You can make a bigger impact by donating long-term appreciated securities, including stock, bonds, and mutual funds. You may be able to automatically increase your gift and your tax deduction by donating securities as compared to cash.

If you are above the age of 70 1/2 and have a Traditional IRA, you are eligible to make a Qualified Charitable Donation (QCD). QCDs are funds from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) that can be donated to a nonprofit organization without first recognizing it as income. QCDs are also sometimes referred to as IRA Charitable Rollovers.

When making a gift of stock, please contact Lisa Johnston at or 206-748-9700 to assure your gift is processed and acknowledged correctly.


Did you know?

A FULL YEAR of advocacy, including multiple reports over time; legal representation during litigation; and oversight by a multi-disciplinary professional team is less than $3600. That equates to less than the cost of 10 market rate hours of attorney time and less than half the cost of a professional parenting evaluation. Thank you for providing an advocate for a child in need.
