Smart Giving: Donate Non-Cash Assets


Save taxes by donating stocks!

Donating stocks allows you to avoid capital gains tax and often take a charitable deduction for the full value of the asset. Use this online stock tool to donate stock so we can track your gift, send you the correct receipt, and you can get the tax savings you deserve. 

If you would prefer to make your donation through your broker, access our transfer information to notify GRID of your gift. 

Save on taxes by giving from your IRA

If you are 70.5 or older, giving from your IRA can help reduce your taxable income - and for those over 73 who must take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), an IRA gift is a simple way to fulfill it! 

Use this tool to give from your IRA. You can auto-complete your paperwork and we can track your gift to send you the proper tax receipts. 

Easily make a grant from your Donor-Advised Fund

Donor-Advised Funds (DAFS) are investment accounts for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations today. Use this secure DAF link to:
