Making Stock Gifts to United Way of the Virginia Peninsula

You may give securities to United Way of the Virginia Peninsula by transferring the shares into one of United Way’s brokerage accounts. United Way then liquidates the shares and uses the proceeds to benefit the community as you direct. You may take a tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the security on the date of transfer and avoid any capital gain tax you may have incurred if you sold the security instead.

Be sure you or your broker provide your name and address to the United Way of the Virginia Peninsula, the name and number of securities transferred, and the stock valuation on the date of transfer. Here’s UWVP’s account information you and your broker need to know.

Make a Planned Gift

For many people, philanthropic giving is a lifelong commitment that provides both personal satisfaction and financial benefits. In addition to planting a seed that will continue to grow for generations to come, there are financial incentives that may apply to planned giving.

A charitable planned gift is the result of careful and thoughtful structuring of one’s estate to benefit one or more charitable organizations. Such a gift is commonly asset-based rather than from current income and often involves a planning process utilizing the services of legal and financial professionals (i.e., estate and tax-planning attorneys, accountants and investment advisors). A planned gift can be given in many ways, including cash, charitable trusts, life insurance, retirement plans, bequests, appreciated property, charitable gift annuities and donor advised funds.

The legal name to use in gift-planning transactions is United Way of the Virginia Peninsula, Inc. Our Federal Tax ID number is 54-0535602

Let us know you made a planned gift for recognition in United Way’s Legacy Society.
