Donating Stock

Gifts of stock and other securities are a convenient way to make a big impact. Not only will your contribution help move us towards the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons, it may also help you save money.

By making a gift of stock held longer than one year, you may completely avoid paying capital gains tax. In addition, you may receive an income tax deduction for the current market value of the gift. You may deduct gifts totaling up to 30% of your adjusted gross income in any year, with a five-year carry-over for any excess.

Electronic Transfer/DTC

If you hold stocks or bonds with a broker, you may transfer the security electronically by instructing your broker to send the security to our account through the Depository Trust Company (DTC).
