Donate Stocks
The gift of an asset, often common stock or mutual fund shares, is a valuable way to make a contribution to a charitable organization and receive tax benefits based on the value of the asset(s). Davidson Housing Coalition has set up an account so that we can now accept these generous donations of appreciated assets.

Suppose Michael and Michelle had 300 shares of XYZ Corporation that they purchased at $15 a share some years ago. The current value in today’s market is $36 a share. If they sold the stock in the market, they would have a taxable, long-term capital gain on the difference between their cost and what they would receive from the sale ($36 minus $15 = $21 capital gain per share. 300 shares X $21.00 = $6,300 in capital gains).

Michael and Michelle could sell the stock, pay the tax on the capital gain, and either keep or donate the proceeds. If, however, instead of selling the stock, they gave the 300 shares to charity, they would not incur any capital gains and would be able to deduct the current value (300 shares X $36 = $10,800) on their tax return as a charitable gift. By donating the stock, the charity receives a larger gift than it would receive if Michael and Michelle first sold the stock and then donated the proceeds after deducting the capital gain taxes. Also, Michael and Michelle receive a greater tax deduction by giving the stock directly to the charity and avoiding the capital gain tax.

While the gift of appreciated assets often is stock, other marketable assets, such as land, antiques, and homes, can be utilized as potential gifts with the possibility of valuable tax benefits. However, these are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. For more information about gifts of appreciated assets, please contact us so we can respond to your specific needs.

Did you know many companies offer a matching gift program to encourage philanthropy among their employees? Some companies will even match to spouses and retirees. 

By simply completing a matching gift form (online or paper), you may be able to double, or even triple, the impact of your gift! Contributions of any amount help us provide affordable housing, home repair, and financial counseling services to our community. 

Please check with your company’s Human Resources department to see if your company offers a matching gift program. For additional information about Matching Gifts, please email anthony@davidsonhousing.org.

In-Kind Donations

In-kind contributions are donations of goods, services or time — instead of monetary donations.

Tangible goods include things like equipment, furniture and supplies. Goods may also be intangible, such as advertising. Goods may be used, surplus, brand new or even loaned.

In-kind services are professional services donated by groups such as corporations, small businesses, vendors, colleges, individual professionals or tradespeople. For example, DHC could be given property improvements (i.e. new roofing and installation for apartments) as an in-kind service.

An in-kind donation involving time occurs when people give their time free of charge or for payment by a third party on DHC’s behalf. An employer might also loan paid employees to help support DHC.
