Other Ways to Give


Take advantage of the tax benefit for charitable giving by donating appreciated assets. By donating stock, you can:

  • Amplify Your Impact: Donating securities that have increased in value directly to MAAA empowers you to make a more substantial contribution without the initial high cost.
  • Avoid Capital Gains Tax: If you sell an appreciated asset, you pay capital gains tax on the increase in value. However, donating the asset directly to M-AAA exempts you from this tax, ensuring that the full value of your gift supports our cause.
  • Receive a Charitable Deduction: You will receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the asset at the time of the gift, regardless of what you originally paid for it.

Ready to take the step towards making a stock donation? Here’s how:

  1. Choose Your Stock: Identify which stocks you wish to donate, including the stock name, its ticker symbol (if publicly traded), the number of shares earmarked for donation, and the planned transfer date.
  2. Connect with Us: Reach out to us at giving@maaa.org to obtain our brokerage information, account number, and Depository Trust Company (DTC) number. This also ensures we can acknowledge your generous donation, as stock donations are often reported anonymously by brokerages. 
  3. Fill Out the Necessary Forms: You’ll find the appropriate stock donation forms on your brokerage’s online portal. If electronic forms aren’t available, complete printed forms and send them to your brokerage. Be sure to retain any confirmation number for your records.Note: To be eligible to receive a tax deduction for the current tax year, you need to complete your stock donation by December 31 (A stock donation is recorded on the day it’s received by the charity, not the day you submit the transfer request).
  4. After the transaction, we’ll send you a tax receipt detailing the transfer date, donation value, number of shares, and stock name for your files.
Donor-Advised Fund

A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) lets you make charitable contributions, claim immediate tax benefits, and recommend grants from your fund over time. With a DAF, you can:

  • Grow Your Impact: DAFs allow your fund to increase tax-free, potentially increasing the resources available for granting.
  • Simplify Your Giving: DAFs streamline the giving process, making it easy to distribute funds to your favorite charities, like M-AAA.
  • Enjoy Tax Benefits: With a DAF, you can receive immediate tax benefits in the year you contribute to your fund, which could be more advantageous than cash gifts.

To donate from your Donor-Advised Fund, please have your sponsoring organization direct your gift to the address below. To ensure we can acknowledge your gift, please provide your name and/or fund name, along with your address.
