Donate Stock to KOMD
Your stock donation supports KOMD's mission to find a cure for Duchenne, and to help the thousands of families who are impacted by this terrible disease.
Join us in our fight for a cure by making a charitable gift in stock. We accept donations in publicly traded, domestic common stocks.
How can I donate stock to KOMD?
Select your stock ticker and confirm the company name in the donation form.
Enter your gift amount, and type in your email and address info for the receipt.
Enter your brokerage account information.
Virtually sign & make your gift!
Upon making a donation, you will receive an email notification from The Giving Block that your gift is being processed. In some circumstances, you may need to take action with your broker. The email will have instructions on any next steps.
Charitable donations of stock are processed safely and typically within 6-8 business days with The Giving Block in partnership with Renaissance Charitable Foundation. Processing times can be longer during December or when dealing with restricted stock.
Why does KOMD accept stock?
After receiving multiple requests for non-cash donation solutions (like crypto and stocks), we found The Giving Block. Stock fundraising is a critical donation revenue driver for nonprofit organizations like KOMD.
With over 60% of Americans owning stock and billions in stock donated to US charities every year, stock donations can make a wide-reaching impact through philanthropy. Studies show that nonprofits that accept noncash assets typically grow 50% faster than those that do not and they grow 66% faster when they accept non cash securities such as stock.
Donating stock is also one of the most tax-efficient ways for individuals to support causes that matter to them. We are excited about what the future holds in the crypto and blockchain space, and believe that we’ve just scratched the surface of its true fundraising potential.
Which stocks do you accept?
We currently accept publicly traded, domestic common stock.
We are continually in the process of adding support for new assets to donate, so please check back soon for more giving options.
Are stock donations tax-deductible?
Yes! Stock donations are one of the most tax-efficient ways to give to charity. Your stock donation is tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law; if you pay taxes in the U.S. By making a charitable gift, you may also be eligible to significantly reduce what you would otherwise owe in capital gains taxes.
As with any tax-related questions, be sure to consult with a qualified, professional tax advisor.
