Make a Gift of Stock

You can donate publicly traded stocks to Union Station Homeless Services. 

Giving appreciated stock to us can mean significant tax benefits for you!   

If you have owned appreciated securities for more than one year and a day, your contribution can offer the following benefits:

  1. Eliminate Capital Gains Tax: By donating appreciated securities, you avoid the capital gains tax owed.
  2. Enjoy a Last Minute Tax Break: Securities can be deducted on the date you transfer them – this is helpful at the end of the calendar. 

If you are interested in making a gift of securities, contact Dana Bean at dbean@unionstationhs.org or (626) 240-4558 with the transfer details so we can prepare to receive the stock in our account.
