Gifts of Stock

The gift of an asset, often common stock or mutual fund shares, is a valuable way to make a contribution to Girl Scouts River Valleys.

You will receive an immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value, no matter what you originally paid for them. You will pay no capital gains tax on the transfer, and giving appreciated stock may be more beneficial than giving cash.

How it Works

You transfer the appreciated stock, bonds or mutual fund shares that you have owned for more than one year to Girl Scouts River Valleys, and we sell your securities and use the proceeds for our programs.

For more information on transferring stocks, bonds or mutual funds, contact Stephanie Pommier, Vice President of Individual Giving at 651-379-4774 or stephanie.pommier@girlscoutsrv.org.
