Many people donate their appreciated stocks to Neighborhood House because it helps save on two types of taxes. Giving stock is an easy way to maximize your impact, and your personal savings.

If you prefer to work directly with your broker to complete an electronic transfer of stock or mutual funds, instruct your broker to transfer the securities to Neighborhood House’s account. Please, email Nick Contreraz to secure this information.

It is very helpful if you contact Nick to let him know your stock gift is on the way. This helps us ensure your donation is received. We would also want to properly acknowledge your contribution. Your gift can be given anonymously if you wish, but by notifying us we can work with our broker to guarantee the stock gift process works seamlessly.
