Why Does The Coalition Accept Gifts Of Stock?

Over 60% of Americans own stock, and billions of dollars of stock are donated to charitable organizations every year. Donating stock is also one of the most tax-efficient ways for individuals to support We Don’t Waste’s mission.

Which Stocks To You Accept?

We currently accept publicly traded, domestic common stock.

Are Stock Donations Tax-Deductible?

Yes! Stock donations are an exceptionally tax-efficient way to give to charity. Your stock donation is tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law; if you pay taxes in the U.S. By making a charitable gift, you may also be eligible to significantly reduce what you would otherwise owe in capital gains taxes.

As with any tax-related questions, be sure to consult with a qualified, professional tax advisor.
