Important Notes:

*Please initiate your gift of stock to Federation as soon as possible. The date of your gift and gift receipt are determined by the day your stock reaches Federation’s brokerage account, not when you initiate the transfer. We strongly recommend that you request all stock transfers before December 15, to maximize the chance that we receive the stock in time for a 2021 tax deduction. The gift value for tax purposes is determined by the average of the high and low prices on the day the investment is received in Federation’s brokerage account.

** Charitable rollovers from IRAs may not be put into Donor Advised Funds.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington does not offer tax, financial, or legal advice. Please consult your advisors.
