Contribute Securities

There are advantages of giving appreciated stock versus cash. A gift of securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy way for you to make a gift.

Here are some of the potential benefits:

  • Avoid paying capital gains tax
  • Receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value
  • Enjoy possible increased income

Make your gift today by electronic transfer! It's easy - here are the delivery instructions to make a transfer from your brokerage account to GVE or Goodwill of the Finger Lakes.

If you would you like more information on making a gift of stock or if you have already made a donation, please contact Jennifer Boutte, Vice President of Community Engagement, at (585) 697-5780 or
