Give a Gift of Stock

Donating appreciated securities, such as stocks or mutual funds, is a smart and easy way to support the Foundation. Your gift of stock will help ensure that we can continue expanding our life-changing programs, including Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, which serves the longest-waiting youth waiting in foster care such as teenagers, siblings and children with special needs, who are counting on us today.

Just as with cash gifts, you will receive a federal income tax deduction for the full market value of any securities you donate as long as you have owned them for at least one year. Be sure to consult with your tax or legal advisory.

For more information on giving a gift of stock, read our instructions or contact Lisa Rovner, Director, Development, at lisa.rovner@davethomasfoundation.org or (+1) 614-764-6858.

Support the Foundation through your Donor-Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund allows you to give back to causes that are close to your  heart in ways that are flexible, cost-effective, and tailored to your personal  philanthropic goals. When you support the Foundation through your donor-advised fund, you help to raise awareness about the urgent need for foster care adoption, provide free educational resources for families exploring adoption and support the expansion of our Wendy’s Wonderful Kids® program.

Donor-advised funds are the fastest-growing, most tax-efficient giving method to manage charitable donations. Donor-advised funds allow donors to make a charitable contribution to the organization or foundation administering the DAF, receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time.

How to recommend a donor-advised fund gift to the Foundation:

  1. Request a grant distribution through your DAF sponsor.
  2. Be sure to use the Foundation’s charity registration number: 876047804RR0001.
  3. You can also designate the Foundation as a beneficiary for your donor-advised fund.
