- Increase the number of low-income children who attend quality early education programs

Stock Advantages Over Cash Your securities donation can deliver significant tax advantages over a cash donation, allowing you to fund the community issues you care about at a lower after-tax cost to you. The chart to the right depicts the difference between the after-tax cost of a gift of cash and a gift of stock. Assume that the stock was originally purchased at $250 (basis), the income tax rate is 27%, and the capital gains tax is 20%.
*For tax receipt purposes, actual stock valuation is based on the mean of the highest and lowest price on the day the stock is received by United Way. Gifts of stock will be liquidated when received, and brokerage fees will be deducted from the gross proceeds. The net proceeds will be disbursed to your charities. Learn more here.
