STOCKS & BONDS
We have proven programs that work, but kids have to wait up to 18 months or more to get a Big Brother or Sister. When you make a donation, you move kids off the waitlist and matched with their mentor.
Make Your Donation go Farther by Donating Appreciated Securities.
Don’t sell your stock and donate the proceeds! Make a bigger impact by donating long-term (held more than one year) appreciated securities, including stock, bonds, and mutual funds, directly to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound. In doing so, you may be able to automatically increase your gift and your tax deduction.*
Here’s how it works: You transfer securities to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound; then, Big Brothers Big Sisters sells them and uses the proceeds to help connect kids facing adversity with caring adult mentors. It’s that simple.
Please contact please contact Kari Hammett-Caster (206.456.9792) for more information or instructions for completing your transfer.

Everybody wins when you donate stock! Not only do the kids served by Big Brothers Big Sisters benefit, you get the full current value as a charitable donation without having to pay capital gains tax on the appreciation!*
