Donation of appreciated stock is a great way to maximize your support of Shoulder to Shoulder.
If you donate your stock directly to Shoulder to Shoulder, you can avoid tax on the gains, and because StS is a non profit, 501(c)3 organization, we do not pay taxes on the gains. This can effectively increase your donation to StS up to 20% at no cost to you. A great way to leverage your support!
