Gift Stocks

Did you know that when you donate stock, you avoid the tax on the gain while deducting 100% of the value of the contribution? When you give stock, you may earn 2-3x the tax savings vs. donating cash. It’s a win-win for you and us. And now it’s fast, safe and easy to do.

Adoption & Beyond, Inc. has partnered with to enable our supporters to make stock donations in 10 minutes or less. Our DonateStock page enables you to donate stock from your brokerage directly to our account through a secure portal, making the gifting process fast, safe and easy.

So remember, charitable giving doesn’t always mean cash. By giving stock, your support will have even greater impact—without denting your pocketbook. Give smart and save more by putting stock in something that matters.

Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)

Qualified Charitable Distribution allows IRA holders, age 70 ½ or older, to donate to a qualified charity from their Traditional or Roth IRA (including inherited) tax-free. Talk with your financial advisor about taking advantage of the QCD to benefit the work that Adoption & Beyond does for families and children.



It’s not easy to think about you not being here on a daily basis with your loved ones. A Will provides for the people and charities that are most important to you. It’s the best way to ensure your wishes are carried out. A gift from your Will is a powerful way to make an impact at Adoption & Beyond.

You may make a bequest or gift through your estate by including a provision in your will or living trust, or by naming Adoption & Beyond as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy. A bequest is a gift from your estate—a transfer of cash, securities, or other property—made through your estate plans. A bequest costs nothing now and enables you to contribute to Adoption & Beyond’s impact far into the future. Some of the advantages of creating a bequest include:

  • You retain control of and use of your assets during your lifetime.
  • You may modify your bequest if your circumstances change.
  • Gifts to Adoption & Beyond from your estate are exempt from federal estate taxes.
