Stock donations are best bet for tax purposes

Donors Jay and Robyn Jaffin made a stock donation, so they don’t have to pay on the associated capital gains.

Incredible gratitude stirs up decision to support disabled veterans through generous stock gift

Making a stock gift to DAV was an easy decision for Jay and Robyn Jaffin. They realized that giving a gift of appreciated stock is a win-win for themselves and DAV. By transferring the stock directly to DAV, they avoided paying capital gains taxes and took a charitable deduction for the full value of their gift.

Like many of DAV’s donors, the Jaffins feel an unwavering obligation to support the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much. It’s because of the generosity and compassion of people like the Jaffins that DAV has continued to serve ill and injured veterans throughout the United States for nearly a century.

“Robyn and I are incredibly grateful for all of the sacrifices our veterans have made … for all of us. While we’re not veterans ourselves, we have relatives who are and recognize that we don’t do enough to support them. DAV puts our dollars to good use, and that’s why we chose them specifically to support,” said Jay.

Whether or not you are a veteran, please fill out the attached postcard or call DAV today if you would like to give a meaningful gift of appreciated stock to support the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much. Someone in the Personal Philanthropy Programs Department would love to help you make a difference, just like Jay and Robyn.
