Gifts of stock and securities
When you donate appreciated stock, instead of paying taxes, you can receive a sizable charitable deduction and the satisfaction of knowing you are helping to protect our environment.
Gift the following information to your broker to transfer stock. (When making a gift please notify our membership department at (202) 222-0716 or via e-mail at email@example.com. That will allow us to identify your gift when it arrives and send you the appropriate tax receipt letter.)

A gift of $25 or more entitles your friend or relative to full membership benefits, including a year long subscription to the Friends of the Earth newsmagazine, the right to vote in our annual election, invitations to special events, and the knowledge that they are part of the fight to build a healthy and just world.
Tribute and memorial gifts
Tribute and memorial gifts are a thoughtful way to honor someone special or remember someone who has passed away. When you give we will send a card to the person you specify, telling them of your gift and how it will affect the work Friends of the Earth does to help our planet and the people who depend on it.
Many employers, as part of their employee benefits package, will match donations made by employees to charitable organizations. Check with your personnel office to see whether your company has a matching gift program. If it does, your gift to protect the environment could have twice the impact!
