Maximize Your Impact-Gifts of Stock

Make the Most of Your Donor-Advised Fund

Give from Your IRA

A gift of stock makes a huge impact and creates a lasting effect for countless of our neighbors. Gifting stocks maximize your gift and allow you to avoid federal capital gains tax. Most donors can also claim an income tax deduction for the stock’s full market value. We’ve invested in this secure online tool that enables you to donate your appreciated assets in 10 minutes. The process is simple.

Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs) are investment accounts for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations, like us. With a grant recommendation today, you can give from money you’ve already set aside without spending an additional cent!  This secure online tool integrates with your DAF custodian and takes just a few minutes to use.

If you’re 70 ½ or older and want to lower your taxable income, donations from your IRA to the work of Volunteers of America will reduce your taxable income and can help meet a required minimum distribution.

Make An Impact with Cryptocurrency

Gifts in Wills

A gift of appreciated cryptocurrency to support Volunteers of America’s work in transforming the lives of our neighbors can help you avoid capital gains taxes and get a big tax deduction. Donating cryptocurrency is safe, easy, and tax-efficient.

Are you looking to support Volunteers of America for generations to come? We’ve partnered with FreeWill to make it simpler than ever to create your legal will and start your legacy with Volunteers of America in the process.
