Stock, Matching, or Gifts in Honorarium

Stock Gifts

There may be significant tax advantages to giving stock or mutual funds to Audubon Washington, and the process is simple. Contact Development Director Charley Wilkinson at 206-652-2444 X111 stock or wire transfer information.

Did your portfolio increase in value this year? Donating appreciated securities enables you to support Audubon while conserving cash for other uses, and helps you avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation. Donated shares must be appreciated in value and owned for longer than one year.

It is important to note that the legal date – and value – of your gift depends on when Audubon receives it, not when you instruct your broker to make the transaction. If you would like to make a gift of stock, have your broker contact Marc Scollo at 212-979-3069. And, don't forget to call us at 206.652.2444 x111 or email Charley Wilkinson to let us know your gift is on the way!

You can also use appreciated stocks to fund a larger gift that will pay you an income for life. Please call Shari Kolding at 512-236-9076 for more details.

Matching Gifts

Make your gift go twice, or even three times, as far! Take advantage of your company’s matching gift program. Ask your company's human resources representative for a matching gift form, fill out your portion, and enclose it with your gift. Tax ID #: 13 - 1624102

Honoring Gifts

Make a contribution to Audubon Washington to honor someone special or in memory of a loved one. The honoree’s memory lives on in Audubon’s efforts to protect birds and their habitat while giving back to our local communities. Give a living tribute in honor of anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, weddings, or other special occasions. When you give a living tribute gift, the person honored or the family of the person memorialized will receive an acknowledgement of your tax-deductible gift.
