DONATE STOCK TO OSOT-AMERICA

We’ve partnered with Stock Donator to accept a new type of donation! Stock Donator provides a secure, fast, and simple web-enabled service to donate publicly traded stocks to various organizations.  Here’s How It Works:

 

  1. Individual donors log on to www.stockdonator.com and enter the information required to donate stock.
  2. Stock Donator collects all entered information and generates the required forms to send onto the Donor’s Brokerage Firm.
  3. Some firms may use Medallion Signatures (MS) as an additional means to validate the donation request. If so, that will be handled.
  4. Stock Donator receives the stock donations from the Donor’s Brokerage Firm.
  5. Stock Donator provides the stock proceeds net of any fees and service charges to the receiving organization, based on the organization’s preference to either liquidate immediately or transfer the stock.
  6. To complete the process, Stock Donator provides the Donor with the transaction receipts needed to claim the tax deduction for the stock donations.

If you do not want to initiate a stock donation online via Stock Donator you can also make a stock donation by initiating the share transfer from your brokerage account, CLICK HERE for details.

MONETARY DONATION VIA DAF–Donor Advised Fund

Donor-Advised Funds are the fastest-growing giving method and tax-efficient way to manage charitable donations. Donor-Advised Funds allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time.

Grants made to Operation Support Our Troops-America through Donor Advised Funds help us to support the morale and well-being of American forces by providing comfort, resources, and education to them and their families both while they are deployed in harm’s way and after their return. As a volunteer-based nonprofit organization, we provide the opportunity for our community members to express their appreciation and offer support for our troops. Engaged in the longest war of our country’s history and with our servicemen and women completing multiple tours of duty, we are committed to showing them that “We Have NOT Forgotten.”

 

Please consider recommending Operation Support Our Troops-America as an organization to support through your donor-advised fund. We are a 501 (c)(3) public charity that is powered by the support of donors, like you.

Clients of Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, and BNY Mellon can easily make a designation through the DAF Direct window on this page.

Operation Support Our Troops-America’s Tax I.D. number is 20-4275756.
