Frequently Asked Questions

Stock Gifts vs. Appreciated Securities

Giving appreciated securities is one of the many ways our donors choose to make a charitable contribution to Beech Acres Parenting Center.

Why donate appreciated securities?

  • Increase the amount of your gift while lowering your net-after-tax cost
  • Eliminate capital gains tax on the appreciation of your shares
  • Receive eligibility for charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value of your shares

When donating appreciated securities, you can:

  • Give as a one-time contribution or annually
  • Establish a permanent fund to honor a special person in your life
  • Develop a giving plan, such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust

Is Beech Acres Parenting Center a not-for-profit organization?

  • For an online contribution, you have the option to indicate your program preference.

How do I make a gift in honor of a friend or family member?

For a contribution made by postal mail, please include a note with your gift that tells us the name of the person being honored or remembered, as well as the name and address of anyone you would like to notify about the gift.

We will send:

  • An acknowledgment card to the honoree or family member regarding your gift. (The amount will not be shared in this card.)
