California HOPE (CalHOPE), a program run by the California Department of Health Care Services, delivers crisis support for communities impacted by a national disaster, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. CalHOPE builds community resiliency and helps people recover from disasters through free outreach, crisis counseling, and support services. For California residents, CalHOPE offers a call-line — (833) 317-HOPE (4673) — to talk about your struggles and get emotional support from someone who has persevered through tough situations.
Donating long-term appreciated securities to BSN benefits families affected by neurological disorders and potentially you as well! Gifts of long-term appreciated securities may have tax advantages that could maximize your gift and reduce your taxes.
Potential benefits of donating stock may include:
- Reducing federal and state tax on the capital gain;
- Receiving an income tax deduction (federal and most states) for the full-market value of the gift if you itemize deductions on your tax return and have held the assets one year or longer;
- Making a larger gift at a lower original cost to you.
