Ways to Give
The Coalition gratefully accepts gifts of publicly traded securities. For the donor, securities are easily valued without an appraisal and easy to transfer. Donating appreciated securities before they are sold typically results in tax advantages to you:
- You can deduct the current market value of your stock gift from your federal taxes.
- You pay no capital gains tax on the appreciated value.
- Your stock gift of $5,000 or more can qualify for the Homeless Contribution Tax Credit for 25% of the donation.

You may make a stock gift here or call (303)-312-9640 to inform us of your incoming gift.
If you are age 70½ or older, you may donate up to $100,000 per year from your IRA. This option allows you to donate from pre-tax dollars, increasing the value of your gift while preserving available cash on hand. This option works best for people who claim the Standard Deduction, and your gift amount can also help fulfill your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). Your gift can also qualify for state tax credits, further reducing your total tax bill.
Direct your IRA administrator to make a direct transfer to the Coalition:
Colorado Coalition for the Homeless
(Taxpayer Identification Number: 84-0951575)
PO Box 1560
Denver, CO 80201-1560
To properly receipt and acknowledge you for your donation, please make sure to contact our office with your intentions before the transfer. For more information on donating stock, mutual funds, bonds, or other securities please contact us at email@example.com.
Ask if your employer offers the option of giving through payroll deduction as part of a United Way, Combined Federal Campaign (CFC #56182) or workplace giving program. Simply designate the Coalition to receive your gift and specify how much you would like to give. Your Human Resources department will have more information and can tell you if your gift will be matched.
