GIVE STOCK OR SECURITIES

Consider a gift of stock to Thousand Currents and save on taxes. When you gift the stock directly to Thousand Currents, you not only receive a tax deduction for your gift at the current market value, but you also avoid tax liability on the appreciated gain. For more information on how to make a stock or securities transfer, see Thousand Currents Stock Gift Instructions.

MAKE AN IRA CONTRIBUTION

Supporters who are 70.5 or older with a traditional IRA are eligible to make a contribution to Thousand Currents directly from their IRAs. These gifts are typically tax-free, regardless of whether or not you itemize deductions on your tax return. Thousand Currents is partnering with FreeWill.com to provide a step-by-step process to fill out the necessary forms and learn more about the benefits of giving from your IRA.

GIVE THROUGH YOUR WORKPLACE

Many employers make matching gifts. Ask your administrative department if your employer has such a program, and double the size of your contribution! Some employers even arrange for pre-tax deductions, or handle the donation for you.
