The gift of an appreciated asset is a powerful way to support the work of the National Women’s Health Network. While this giving strategy has many obvious financial benefits, no doubt the most important is the satisfaction of knowing that your support helps give women a greater voice within the health care system!

Your gift of securities will entitle you to a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize your tax returns. And in the case of appreciated securities, you may deduct the full fair market value of your gift once you have held onto the securities for at least one year. In addition, you will avoid paying capital gains tax on all stock that you chose to donate to the National Women’s Health Network.

How Can I Make a Gift of Stock?

You can authorize your stock broker or your bank to complete the transfer process. Please instruct your broker or bank to call 202-682-2640 to speak with someone on our member services team.

If you hold the physical securities (stock certificates), you can directly mail the certificate(s) without any endorsement or assignment to:

National Women’s Health Network
ATTN: Department of Individual Giving
1413 K Street, NW, 4th Floor
Washington, DC 20005
202-682-2640
nwhn@nwhn.org

Please enclose a letter stating the purpose of your gift (for example, “to benefit all of the programs of NWHN”). In a separate envelope, please include a signed stock power form for each gift (available from your bank or broker). Please note that except for your signature exactly as your name appears on the stock certificate, the stock power form should be blank.

If you’ve already made or intend to make a gift of stock to NWHN, please notify us so that we can process your gift of stock securely and accurately.
