Plant Trees | Save Lives and Reduce Taxes!

IMG_4342.JPG

This month the stock market has reached a historic high, with the DOW surpassing 18,000. A great way to give to charities at year end is to donate appreciated stock.

If you have stock that has been held for more than one year, you can donate shares to Eden and save taxes in two ways. First, you avoid paying capital gains tax on the increase in value of your stock. Second, you receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift. This is a very tax efficient way to give!

Your gift will go directly to helping Eden deliver it's mission to reduce extreme poverty through environmental stewardship. We will employ the poorest of the poor who desperately need jobs to plant trees and restore their environment.

Making a stock donation is easy! Just contact Client Associate Denise Schachne at JP Morgan and let her know that you'd like to make a stock donation to Eden Reforestation Projects.
