How You Can Help


Securities and Stock Donations

Gifts of appreciated securities may offer substantial tax advantages. These include avoiding capital gains tax entirely, and an income tax charitable deduction for the fair market value of the securities.

The gift value of securities is their fair market value on the day you give them. In the case of certificates mailed to us, the date of gift is the date of mailing; if the shares are transferred to Rochester on the books of a broker or agent, then the gift date is the date of transfer.

Eastman Commons gratefully accepts shares of appreciated stock.  Please review the procedure outlined on our Securities and Stock Donation form, call our Fundraising Representatives at 585-671 - 4069 or tell us about your interest by using the Contact Us feature of our website.

Your payment and personal contact information will be kept strictly CONFIDENTIAL and will NOT be shared with any other party or mailing list.

Your donation is tax-deductible because Eastman Commons is recognized by the IRS as a non-profit charitable organization under Sec. 501(c)(3).  Contributions can be accepted for unlimited amounts and contributions may be personal or corporate. Information on Eastman Common’s IRS Form 990 is available for review.  All contributions will be graciously received, deeply appreciated and timely acknowledged for your tax reporting purposes.

If you have any questions about giving to Eastman Commons, please contact our Fundraising Representatives at (585) 671–4069 or by using the CONTACT US feature of this website.
