Donate Stock and Securities

If you own stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other assets, it may be advantageous to make your gift directly in the form of securities rather than cash. An outright gift of long-term, appreciated securities is exempt from capital gains taxes, and you receive a charitable tax deduction at the fair market value of the securities. For more information or to make a gift, contact:

Carol Sumkin, Chief Development Officer  at (212) 870-3490, or email
