Transferring stock

Transferring Stock

Donate your appreciated stock directly to FAC, and you can receive an immediate income-tax deduction for the securities' fair market value on the date of transfer (even if you originally paid much less for them). FAC sells your securities and uses the proceeds to support our mission. You do not pay capital gains tax on the transfer when the stock is sold. Giving appreciated stock can be more beneficial than giving cash. The “cost” of your gift is often less than the deduction you gain by making it. In advance, thank you for making this generous gift. To gift stock to FAC you'll need the following information: Broker Info: DTC # and Account # /Account Registered as: First Amendment Coalition, 534 Fourth St., Suite B, San Rafael, CA 94901 Please speak to your tax advisor and then call FAC at 415-460-5060 to notify us of your donation or with any questions.

Employer Matching Funds

Employer Matching Funds

Many companies offer matching gift programs. Companies like to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Some employers provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours too. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift! Please check with your employer to see if you can increase the impact of your gift with their match.

Making an Impact

“In 2022, FAC served record numbers of constituents. We armed journalists with essential knowledge and tools and empowered them to do the important work of informing their communities. We provided custom workshops to empower Californians in their pursuit of facts and justice. We stood up for people being silenced and intimidated by government”

Tasha Williamson,

Social Justice Activist and Founder of Exhaling Injustice

“I wanted more community members to know their rights, and FAC was very supportive." In 2022, FAC partnered with Williamson for a three-day community education series. "Most of the time activists are seen in the streets and at meetings, but being able to make government information available to the the public, it's huge."

Regina Wilson, Executive Director, California Black Media

“I want our publications to remember their special role in the community and continue the tradition of holding public bodies and officials accountable. That's why I turned to FAC's experts to lead our educational workshops on accessing records and goverment meetings.”

Regina Brown Wilson,

Executive Director, California Black Media

Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other Cryptocurrencies

Donate Cryptocurrency Directly to FAC and Maximize Your Tax Benefits

There’s a reason high net-worth individuals tend to donate property instead of cash. Donating cryptocurrency directly to a 501c3 nonprofit is more tax efficient and can save you money.

The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes, typically the most tax-efficient way to support your favorite cause. You receive a tax deduction for the crypto’s fair market value when donating crypto. You avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation. That means you’re able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return. The difference? Sometimes more than 30%.
