Gifts of Stock

A Gift of Stock Can Yield a Wealth of Benefits for You and Clean Water

When you give a stock donation or appreciated securities to LA Waterkeeper you will be advocating for the future of our bays, beaches and rivers while making a positive difference in your community. At the same time, you are diversifying your portfolio and may also receive an immediate tax deduction and savings on your gains taxes.

How it works

1. You transfer stock/securities to LA Waterkeeper through your broker.

2. LA Waterkeeper sells your securities and uses the proceeds for its programs.


  • You receive gift credit and an immediate tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, no matter what you originally paid for them.
  • You pay no capital gains tax on the securities you donate.
  • You can direct your gift to a specific fund, program or purpose.
  • You have the satisfaction of making a significant gift now or funding a life-income gift that benefits the LA Waterkeeper later.
