Gifts of Stock

A gift of appreciated marketable securities is an attractive method of realizing your charitable goals while supporting Hudson River Park Friends. 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 Director of Development, Toby Pearce at 212-757-0981 x 728 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 our bank information including a DTC number and account number.
