Gifts of appreciated securities enable you to support the Conservancy’s programs and mission while simultaneously achieving two tax benefits: avoidance of capital gains taxes and eligibility to receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value at the time of the gift.

Matching Gifts

Many companies offer employees a matching gift benefit that, in effect, doubles (or in many cases even triples) your gift to the Conservancy. Matching gifts make a critical contribution to our continued conservation, education and recreation programs on Catalina.

So when making a gift to the Conservancy, please consider earmarking us for a corporate match.
