If you would like to donate stocks, mutual funds or other appreciated securities, we would be happy to help you and your broker transfer securities in a simple, straightforward way.

If you own publicly traded stocks or bonds that have appreciated in value and have owned them for more than 12 months, you may want to consider the income tax benefits of giving securities. In fact, donating stock saves even more taxes than donating cash, since there is no capital gains tax when appreciated securities are given to a nonprofit.

If you own stock that has dropped in value, consider selling this asset, and donating the proceeds to Hope House Ministries. By doing so, you will be able to claim a capital loss deduction on your income tax return, as well as an income tax deduction for your charitable gift.

Please have your broker provide Hope House Ministries a copy of the letter of instruction and the following: the stock name, number of shares, gift allocation, and date of transaction. Hope House Ministries works with Stifel Nicolaus to transfer and sell stocks that are donated to our organization.
