Stock and Mutual Fund Donations


Making a donation of stocks can be a very smart way to support helping to create a better future for the San Diego River, wildlife and our region.


With appreciated stock you may not need to pay capital gains! Therefore, you can put the stock's full value to work to make an impact. Please check with your tax or financial advisors to learn of any limitations.

You receive an immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value of the stocks on the date of the transfer, no matter the original value.

The stocks need to be transferred directly to our stock broker.

Great news, we can also accept Mutual Funds! There may be a slightly different process which requires you to contact our broker so they can initiate the process.

Here is the information you need to make a stock gift:
