Gifts of Stock, Bonds and Mutual Funds

Gifts of appreciated securities may give you a tax deduction and reduce capital gains taxes, while supporting EOCP’s effective work with Alameda County’s homeless.

You may donate stocks, mutual funds and bonds to EOCP and receive a charitable deduction equal to the fair market value of the donated securities. To be fully deductible, the gifted securities must have been held by you for more than one year.

For more information on how to make a gift of securities or a wire transfer to EOCP, please contact Robin Gaston, Office Manager at or 510-746-3605.
