Gifts of Stock

A gift of appreciated marketable securities is an attractive method of realizing your charitable goals while supporting Friends of Hudson River Park.  While providing much needed funds for Friends, such a gift allows you, the donor, to avoid capital gains tax on appreciated securities while also offering you a federal tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift, provided you have owned the securities for more than one year.

To make a gift of securities to Friends, please contact our Development Director, Jonathan Ettinger at 212-757-0981 x 206 or at  You will need to be able to provide the name of the securities and number of shares being transferred.  We will provide you with Friends of Hudson River Park’s bank information including a DTC number and account number.
