Gifting stock means a larger gift and larger tax-deduction!

Did you know when you make a gift, you can request a matching gift from your employer, who then makes their own gift? Companies usually match gifts at a 1:1 ratio, but some will match at a 2:1, 3:1, or even a 4:1 ratio!
Simply check the box 'Get my company to match my donation' in the form below.
Make a bigger impact by gifting long-term (1 Year+) appreciated stock, bonds, and mutual funds directly to REF.
Gifting appreciated stock results in a larger contribution and a larger tax-deduction! See below for example.
Potential for corporate to match gift amount as well!
Avoid capital gains tax on the appreciated stock.
Receive an income tax charitable deduction for the full market value of the stock. Security must be held for at least a year; speak to your tax-advisor prior to making a gift.
See how stock bought for $2,000 can result in a $15,000 gift with $4,700 in total net tax savings!
With Rumson’s loss of State funding in recent years coupled with State-imposed school budget caps, our mission is more critical than ever.
Any gift is greatly appreciated, no matter how large or small. Thank you for your support over the years, this year, and in the future.
With gratitude, REF Board
