GIFT OF STOCK
Help continue the preservation of shamanic wisdom and the return of shamanic healing—and enjoy tax benefits—by making a gift of stock to the Foundation for Shamanic Studies (FSS).
A gift of securities is fully tax-deductible at its market value at the time of your contribution and you can completely avoid capital gains tax by such a gift. Please note that the stock contributed needs to have been held by you for more than 12 months to garner the greatest tax benefits.
To make a gift of stock to FSS, please follow these procedures:
1. Contact your stockbroker. Your broker can make a direct electronic transfer (DTC) of your stock certificates to the account of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies (FSS) with the following information:
Vanguard Brokerage Services
2. Notify FSS as soon as the transfer instructions have been given so that we can alert our broker. To notify FSS, you or your broker should contact:
Please provide FSS with the name of the security, the number of shares to be donated, and the name and phone number of your stockbroker. This notification enables us to alert our own stockbroker that your gift is to arrive.
Now is the time to support your own interest in shamanism
The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charitable organization, tax ID: 06-1131090.
