Many of our members prefer contributing stock, rather than writing a check, to fulfill their annual gift. By giving appreciated property (for example, stocks or bonds) you can avoid paying capital gains taxes on the appreciation, receive a tax deduction on the full value of the gift, and support the Vermont Land Trust at a lower cost to you.
Donations of stock can also be used to endow an annual gift or establish a planned gift, such as a charitable gift annuity.
For more information about gifts of stock or other appreciated property, or to discuss planned giving opportunities, call Jane Coffey at (802) 262-1204.
How to Transfer Stock to the Vermont Land Trust
To make a gift, please notify your broker in writing that you are making a charitable gift of stock to the Vermont Land Trust.
Please call us or have your broker contact Jane Coffey to notify VLT of the transfer. This is important because your name will not be included in the wire transfer to our broker.
