Gifts of stocks and securities
You can also choose to support Golden Gate Audubon through donations of appreciated stocks, jewelry, and real estate and other valuable property, and receive substantial tax reductions. You can also make donations from your retirement accounts. Please consult your tax advisor to calculate your personal benefits. If you would like more information on how to donate, please contact Executive Director Cindy Margulis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many employers, as part of their employee benefits package, will match donations made by employees to charitable organizations. Check with your personnel office to see whether your company has a matching gift program. If it does, your gift to protect the environment could have twice the impact. Please inform your HR office that you are making a donation to Golden Gate Audubon and they will provide the necessary paperwork to double or even triple your gift!

Donate your old car
Put your old Honda to work for hawks, or put your Ford to work for flycatchers. You can donate your old car to Golden Gate Audubon whether it’s running or not. You’ll receive a tax deduction. And GGAS will get funds for its important conservation and eco-education work. For information, contact GGAS Office Manager Monica Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org. Details are also available on the web site of V-DAC, Vehicle Donation to Any Charity.
Support GGAS while you shop
Programs like Amazon Smile and Giving Assistant allow you to designate a nonprofit when you shop online. That nonprofit receives a small payment every time you make a purchase through their portal. We encourage you to designate Golden Gate Audubon Society as your beneficiary if you choose to shop this way.
Use a real estate transaction to benefit GGAS – at no cost to you
The next time you decide to sell a property, you can also help Golden Gate Audubon protect birds and their habitat. We are working with My Broker Donates in a unique partnership in which participating real estate agents donate 15 percent of their commission to GGAS. There is no cost to the homeowner.
How big are those donations? A $500,000 home yields a donation of more than $2,000, which we can use in our work to protect native bird species and their habitats.
Please consider contacting My Broker Donates at http://mybrokerdonates.com/home-buyer-or-seller/golden-gate-audubon before you hire a real estate agent. My Broker Donates will connect you with a participating agent in your area, and Golden Gate Audubon — and the Bay Area’s birds — will benefit.
