No-Cost Ways to Create Your Selfhelp Home Legacy

Donating Stocks and Securities

Appreciated securities are perhaps the most cost-effective assets to use in making a gift. When you transfer ownership of long-term holdings to The Selfhelp Home, you receive a charitable deduction for their full market value — and you incur no capital gains tax (subject to IRS deduction limits). According to IRS regulations, the date of your gift corresponds to the date we receive the transfer.

Please alert us in advance about the stock and number of shares you plan to give. You can do so by e-mailing [email protected]  or calling Marvin Rubin at 773.596.5839. If you need to speak to someone 24/7, you can call

SCHWAB ALLIANCE @ 800-515-2157 (24/7) with any questions.
