While stock gifting represents $100 billion in annual funding, it has only been utilized by the largest nonprofits and the wealthiest donors. The lack of access and a painstaking, manual stock gifting process has been a major deterrent for both donors and nonprofits.
DonateStock’ is closing that gap by providing access and removing friction for all nonprofits while making it fast, safe and free for all donors.
With this collaboration, BetterUnite’s nonprofit customers can now offer donors a more tax-advantaged way to support their mission with appreciated stock. When supporters donate appreciated stock, they can avoid capital gains tax on the increased value of the stock while deducting the fair market value of the gift. Donors can click a button on a BetterUnite donation page or embedded form, then DonateStock facilitates the online donation, converts the stock to cash and distributes the proceeds to the nonprofit while providing transparency, notifications and dashboard reporting. Best of all, there is no cost to get started.
"We are always looking for innovative ways to support nonprofits in their fundraising efforts, and DonateStock has built really cool tech that solves a long-standing problem” says Leya Simmons, BetterUnite Founder and CEO. “This integration into the BetterUnite super app has a lot of giving potential for nonprofits,"
"We love working with Leya and her team at BetterUnite and are very excited to launch this initiative to make stock gifting available to nonprofits of all sizes,” said Erin Arend, SVP Corporate Development. “By embedding our easy button in the BetterUnite giving platform we can help thousands of nonprofits impact millions of lives.”
