Donate Stock

Donating stock to Family Giving Tree is a true win-win.  A stock donor usually can give more money to Family Giving Tree than if you sold the stocks on your own; paid taxes on the gains; and then donated the remaining cash.  Instead, you potentially can write off 100% of the full stock gift and avoid paying capital gains taxes on the stock appreciation.  In turn, our practice is to sell stock gifts immediately and put the proceeds into action locally -- ASAPTo learn more about the process of gifting stock options, and to get started, simply click the button below.

Matching Gifts 

Double your impact with a matching gift or volunteer grant!

Many companies sponsor corporate giving programs that will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Similarly, if you volunteer with Family Giving Tree, your company may also offer a volunteer grant program. By simply checking to see if your employer matches donations or volunteer hours, you can double your impact on Bay Area children and individuals! Some companies may even match gifts made by retirees, spouses, and board members. Contact your company's Human Resources department to learn about a matching gifts program and follow your company's guidelines to apply.

If your company is eligible for a match, you will need to complete a paper form or an electronic submission process through your company's portal. You may send your completed matching gift forms or online verification requests to:

The Family Giving Tree
Sobrato Center for Nonprofits
606 Valley Way
Milpitas CA 95035
(408) 946-3111

Family Giving Tree’s Federal Taxpayer ID is 77-0284682.  If you have any questions about matching gifts please email or call us.

Thank you for fulfilling a wish for joy and learning!
