Donations of stock benefit both the donor and The Danish Home, as you can avoid capital gains and get a tax deduction. Call us at 773-775-7383 and tell us the brokerage that will be making the transaction as well as the name of the stock and how many shares. Be sure to also get the name and account information for The Danish Home’s brokerage.

Create a Facebook Fundraiser
