Stock, Mutual Funds or Securities

Stocks, Mutual Funds and Securities

Thank you for your interest in making a charitable gift to the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation in the form of a stock transfer or ownership share. For stock held in brokerage accounts, your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation. 

Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide better tax benefits than giving cash. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save on brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.

If you would like to make a donation of stock, mutual fund or securities to the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation (tax ID 15- 0533551), please email us at info@wrmail.org for more information.
