eBay Giving Works
You can support Susan G. Komen North Texas when you buy or sell on eBay with the eBay Giving Works program.
Buy – You can find whatever you’re looking for on eBay, from baseball cards to new cars and more. When you do, shop for items that benefit Komen North Texas. You can get a great deal and save lives at the same time!
Sell – Did you know that charity listings often get more bids and higher prices than regular eBay listings? Boost your sales and support our critical work while you’re at it! Plus eBay gives back to you too, with a fee credit on your basic selling fees.
Gifts of Stock
Your stock broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to Susan G. Komen North Texas. Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide greater tax benefits than giving cash. Your charitable income tax deduction may be equal to the fair market value of the stock and you could avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save by not incurring brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.
If you would like more information on how to transfer a gift of stock to Komen North Texas, please contact us at 972-378-4808 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
