A gift of appreciated stock or mutual funds that you have held for at least one year helps WRC to ensure the safety, health, protection, and rights of the most vulnerable refugees.

Such a gift also can benefit you. The full market value of your stocks or mutual funds can be claimed on the day you donate them, without having to pay capital gains tax. And it might mean you may be able to afford a larger gift than one given in cash…one with even greater impact for WRC’s work.

If you are age 70 or older, please check with your financial advisor on the latest information regarding direct contributions from an Individual Retirement Account (IRA). These gifts can offer helpful tax advantages for the donor.
