Stocks

Donations of stock, bonds, mutual funds, and other securities will help ensure that SMYAL’s doors remain open for youth in need of support, while also providing you with considerable tax benefits, including income tax and capital gains tax savings. Discuss your donation with your broker to learn more about possible benefits. While donations of any amount are appreciated, major gifts from individuals make an enormous impact on the outreach and programs we are able to provide. Gifts above $1,000 allow us to fund current initiatives, expand our reach, and plan for the future. Gifts of this amount enter the donor into SMYAL’s Major Donor Club that includes events and activities for our most loyal donors throughout the year.
