OTHER WAYS TO GIVE

Donate Stock

Making a gift of appreciated stocks, bonds and mutual fund shares is an easy and powerful way to contribute to land conservation. Benefits include income and capital gain tax savings.

The first step to making a stock donation is to contact Aja Walter, development associate, at (707) 526-6930 ext 132 or aja@sonomalandtrust.org. Please let her know the name of the security and the number of shares to be donated so we can anticipate and acknowledge your gift. A voicemail or email works well. This important step helps us ensure that we process your gift according to your intent.
