Your investment in the Make-A-Wish mission through a gift of stock or a donor-advised fund is deeply appreciated and needed!
Why Give the Gift of Stock or through your Donor-Advised Funds (DAF)?
Giving stock or through your DAF doesn't just help the children we serve: It also helps you.
Using Stock to Reach Your Philanthropic Goals
If you are trying to reach a certain giving level, donating stock gives you the option to hit the goal without simply writing a check. For instance, reaching a $10,000 annual giving goal becomes easier by pairing a $5,000 cash gift with $5,000 in stock.
Increase Your Giving Power
A gift of appreciated stock to the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Alaska and Washington can benefit you in two ways: you receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities, and at the same time you may avoid capital gains taxes on appreciated stock. This helps stretch your gift even further.
