Gifts of Stock
Giving appreciated stocks and other securities is a tax-wise way to support VPR. For securities held longer than one year, you can deduct their full fair market value, regardless of what you originally paid for them. You also avoid paying capital gains tax.
To make a gift of stock you simply set up a stock transfer. Once the transfer is complete, VPR sells the stock and puts the proceeds to use supporting the programs and services you value.
How to Make a Stock Gift to VPR
You can make your gift through an electronic transfer through your bank or broker.
Your broker will require written instructions from you in order to initiate the transfer. Here's the account information they will need to make the transfer:
Please transfer securities directly to Vermont Public Radio’s account with Mill Creek Capital Advisors as follows:
National Financial Services LLC
New York, NY
DTC # 0226
F/B/O Vermont Public Radio Gifting Account
A/C # BPJ-010286
VPR Tax ID: 030259051
IMPORTANT: Please notify or have your broker notify a member of the VPR Development Department when making a gift, so we can appropriately acknowledge your gift. (Otherwise, we don’t know who the gift is coming from.)
Please contact our development staff with any questions:
- Leanne Klyza-Linck, 800-639-2192 x175, or firstname.lastname@example.org
- Brendan Kinney, 800-639-2192 x189, or email@example.com
Tax-wise gifts also include real estate, personal property, business interests, life insurance, and other assets. For more information, click here.
We encourage you to talk to your tax or financial advisor to better understand the implications of such a gift on your individual tax situation.
