At 3rd Decade, we strive to make financial knowledge accessible for all. By the end of our program, participants are equipped with the knowledge and confidence to be successful in their financial futures. To supplement the classroom teachings they also receive tailored financial guidance from a financial mentor and a $250 match to a Roth IRA account upon graduation from the program. Please use the button below to select how you would like to give along with your preference for the frequency of giving.
Gift of Stock
Increase the Power of Giving
Gifts of stock that have appreciated in value allow you to avoid capital gains taxes while also receiving a tax deduction for your gift. Additionally, you can specify an area that you would like the proceeds to support or have them contributed to the general fund.
3rd Decade benefits from receiving and selling gifted stocks by not having to pay taxes on the gain, and you benefit from making a contribution that would be larger than what you may have been able to donate in other ways.
To make a donation of stock, please use the Stock Donation Form. As electronic transfers are made without identifying the donor, please alert us before a transfer of stock is made so 3rd Decade may properly record your gift.
*Please seek professional advice on tax considerations. Your financial advisor can explain the possible tax benefits depending on whether the stock has appreciated or lost value since the time you acquired it.
We collect and maintain the following types of donor information:
Payment information: credit card number and expiration date, and billing information; and
Requests to receive periodic updates: e.g., to individuals who request it, we will send periodic mailings and/or e-mails related to specific fund-raising events or appeals, and newsletters.
3rd Decade uses your information to complete a transaction, communicate back to you, and update you on 3rd Decade happenings. Credit card numbers are used only for donation or payment processing and are not retained for other purposes.
