Gifts of stock are a great way to support TreePeople's work and can mean significant savings and tax benefits for you. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save on brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock. Consult your tax advisor for details.
To make a stock donation, please fill out our Gifts of Stock Form and fax the completed form to (818) 753-4635 with attention to Development Department. Upon confirmation of the transfer, you will receive tax acknowledgement.
If you need assistance or have questions, please contact our Development Department, by phone at (818) 753-4631 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many organizations offer workplace giving opportunities, which is a simple and effective way to regularly donate to TreePeople through automated payroll deductions. Your employer may also be able to match this gift!
With matching gifts you can double or sometimes even triple your gift to TreePeople! Many employers will match charitable contributions made by their employers, retirees and employees’ spouses. Some employers even provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours.
Please follow the steps below to have your gift or volunteer hours matched by your employer.
Check with your Community Relations or Human Resources Department to see if your employer has a Matching Gift program and, if so, verify if your gift or volunteer hours qualify.
Complete the requirements your company has in place. You may need our Tax Identification Number, which is: 23-7314838.
Submit your matching gift form to us by mail, email or fax to:
