Donate Securities

Donate Securities

Donate your Stocks, Mutual Funds or Bonds. These donations are managed by our partner, Link Charity. To donate Securities, download the forms and 3-step instructions.

There are no capital gains on securities donated directly to charities. Donating securities maximizes your gift to Lifewater and gives you a bigger tax receipt! 

Here is an example of why this is an excellent giving option: If you are in a 45% tax bracket and the stock you bought for $1,000 is now worth $5,000, selling it would result in a capital gain tax of $900. Your net donation would be $4,100 and your tax receipt would save you $1,845. If you donated the shares instead, your donation would be $5,000 and your tax receipt would save you $2,250!
