Gift of Stocks or Bonds

You can donate appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, which is an easy way for you to make a gift to the Museum. The benefits of donating in this tax-effective way include:

  • Avoid paying capital gains tax on the sale of your appreciated stock
  • Receive a charitable tax deduction
  • Help us support our mission

You can make these gifts in two easy ways:

Electronic Transfer: the Museum is happy to provide donors with the instructions on how to transfer stocks or bonds from your brokerage or investment account to DISCOVERY Children’s Museum. Please contact Xiomara Frias, DISCOVERY VP of Finance with any questions at office 702.462-6149 or by email xfrias@discoverykidslv.org

Certified Mail: If you hold securities in certificate form, you will need to mail two envelopes separately to complete your gift. In the first envelope, place the unsigned stock certificate(s). In the other envelope, include a signed stock power for each certificate. You may obtain this power from your broker or bank. Please remember to send this Certified Mail.

Please Note: There are special rules for valuing a gift of stock. The value of a charitable gift of stock is determined by taking the mean between the high and low stock price on the date of the gift. Mutual fund shares are valued using the closing price for the fund on the date of the gift.

From their first day of school to their first A-HA moments.

We put our kids first.

That’s a FIRST made possible by the DISCOVERY Children’s Museum.

As a premier educational partner in the community, we will champion collaboration that inspires every child to become an innovative thinker through the joy and wonder of hands-on DISCOVERY.
