Make a gift of publicly-traded securities to 1,000 Dreams Fund, and save on capital gain tax and, if you itemize, on income tax too. 

A gift of publicly-traded securities could be right for you if:

  • You own publicly-traded securities that you have owned for at least one year and a day.
  • Some of these securities have increased in value since you bought them.
  • Some of these securities may provide you with little or no income.
  • You would like to make a gift to 1,000 Dreams Fund.

How It Works: Make a stocks, bonds, and/or mutual funds donation to 1,000 Dreams Fund

  • You transfer shares of one or more publicly-traded securities, such as stock, bonds, and mutual funds, to 1,000 Dreams Fund.
  • The two most common ways to give publicly-traded securities are to make an outright gift of your securities or to make a gift of your securities and receive payments for life.
