Making charitable donations through stocks and securities that you’ve owned for more than a year is a simple and effective way to support GLFB while offering you valuable financial benefits. Giving in this manner allows you to receive a charitable income tax deduction and avoid capital gains taxes, preserving the health of your portfolio accounts and enabling your donation dollars to go even further.

We encourage you to reach out to your financial advisor for personalized counsel on charitable giving of stocks and securities. If you have general questions about giving in this manner, please contact Kelly Miller, Director of Philanthropy, at
