You should also sign the back side of the certificate with a signature guaranteed by a guarantor institution such as a commercial bank. Gift date will be the postmark date of the mailing.

Gifts of Highly Appreciated Stocks

Giving stocks that you have held for longer than one year is a great way to support Cancer Support Community. If you donate stock that has increased in value since you bought it, and if you itemize deductions, you can take a charitable deduction for the stock’s fair market value on the day you give. You’ll also avoid capital-gains taxes on the increase in value over time, which you would have had to pay if you sold the stock then gave the charity the cash proceeds.

Wire Transfers

For wire transfer information, please contact the Chief Financial Officer at Cancer Support Community, 925.933.0107

Your plan administrator may issue a check directly to Cancer Support Community.
