Giving a gift of stock allows you to make a larger contribution than you might otherwise. By giving stock you avoid paying capital gains taxes on the increase in value, and you receive a tax donation for the full market value. Donors are asked to contact their brokers and request that the stock be transferred to Headwaters School. Please contact Keelan Wackman at k.wackman@headwaters.org for proper instructions.
