Give a Gift of Securities

A gift of publicly traded securities can have a positive impact for both you and youth.

Your gift can make a real difference for youth as it can be used to address immediate pressing needs (such as emergency situations due to the housing crisis or during the pandemic when needs were uncertain and/or changing) or strategically utilized over a longer-term to have a lasting impact and create stability.

Gifting stock may also be positive as you may be elibible for tax benefits. We advise you consult with your financial advisor and/or accountant. 

Publicly traded stocks and securities can be given either through your financial advisor or online.

Donor Story

Shirley and Neil chose to support Phoenix in a new way: they gave a gift of stock. While meeting with their financial advisor, he asked them if they had considered making their donation through stock rather than a cash donation. This type of gift allowed them to avoid capital gains tax and, after discussing this option with their financial advisor, they decided this was a great way for them to support Phoenix. When asked about their nearly two decades of committed support for Phoenix, the answer is simple, “It’s an opportunity to help youth.”
