Other Ways to Give

Donating Stocks & Securities

When you give a gift of appreciated stock, you may receive additional tax benefits for the full fair-market value of the stock and avoid the capital gains tax on the unrealized appreciation or gain.  The stock may come from your brokerage account or from your Individual Retirement Account.  If you qualify, distributions from your IRA as a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), also may receive favorable tax treatment. 
To donate a gift of stock, please provide your broker with our information:
  • Brokerage firm:  Charles Schwab & Co., Inc.
  • Account name:  Seattle Rotary Service Foundation
  • Account number:  3350-4914
  • DTC number:  0164, Code 40
  • Tax identification number:  91-0612120
Because most stock transfers arrive in our account anonymously, please let us know!  Once the stock has been received, we will prepare a gift receipt showing your name as the donor and the value of the stock on the day it was transferred to the Seattle Rotary Service Foundation.

Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)

You can set up your own donor-advised fund (DAF) administered by any number of organizations, such as Schwab Charitable, Fidelity Charitable, or even a non-profit organization such as the Seattle Foundation. SRSF encourages Rotarians to contribute funds to help perpetuate not only the club's goals and projects but also the work of community non-profit organizations engaged in various avenues of Rotary service.

As you consider making a gift to a DAF or a private endowed fund, please keep in mind that the fund administrator may have specific criteria pertaining to their fund.  Many of our members donate highly appreciated assets to a DAF to avoid the capital gains tax on the appreciated stock or other asset and then use donations from the DAF to support SRSF and other qualifying charities over a period of years.  The donation receives its applicable tax deduction on the date the stock is transferred to the DAF.   

For more information email foundation@seattlerotary.org.

Matching Gifts

Many companies will double or even triple your gift to SRSF by matching your contribution dollar-for-dollar or more.  A matching gift can double the impact of your gift and, companies often will match the gifts of retirees as well.  Some of the companies that match gifts to SRSF include Microsoft, Boeing, Google, and Nordstrom.
