Gifts of Stock

One of the most advantageous ways to contribute to Northwest Folklife is through a gift of stock. Making a gift of securities is simple, while offering a number of financial benefits:

  • You can donate appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds
  • The total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible
  • There is no obligation to pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciation

Please notify Northwest Folklife of your/your client’s stock gift. 
We do not automatically receive notification when stock donations are transferred directly to our broker account. In order for Northwest Folklife to provide an accurate receipt for a stock gift, it is essential you notify us at the time of the gift. Please let us know the donor’s name and address as well as the type of stock, number of shares, and expected date of transfer. 

Please contact Corin Shelley-Reuss at 206.684.0996, or corin@nwfolklife.org with the details of your stock transfer.

Thank you.
