Membership Gifts

Gifts of publicly traded securities can be used as your membership donation. By gifting the stock to Trailnet (rather than selling it and donating the proceeds), you receive the federal and state charitable deductions and avoid paying capital gains tax. Both you and Trailnet benefit! 
For more information or to notify Trailnet of your intention to make a gift of stock, contact the Membership Manager.

Matching Gifts: Many employers offer matching gift programs to match charitable contributions made by their employees. If your employer has such a program, the impact of your gift to Trailnet may be doubled and your membership level and benefits can be upgraded.
 Check with your Human Resources Department to see if your company has a matching gift policy and follow the procedures for designating Trailnet as the matching gift recipient. Trailnet will notify you when the matching gift arrives.
