Stocks or Mutual Funds

​One of the most advantageous ways to contribute to Family Advocates is via a gift of stock, or other securities, such as bonds or mutual funds. The total value of your gift is tax-deductible provided it has been held for at least one year, and there is no obligation to pay any capital gains tax on the appreciated value. The gift is fully deductible as of the date it arrives in our account.


​Sponsors are a part of our annual event, our volunteer appreciation celebration and many other program-specific opportunities. You could be a part of a community benefit project while marketing your business and services. Contact Lindsay Biedel, Director of Philanthropy, at for upcoming opportunities.
