Planned Giving/Stocks

Donating appreciated securities such as stocks or mutual funds is a smart and easy way to support Young Artists of America. Just as with cash gifts, you will receive a federal income tax donation for the full market value of any securities you donate as long as you have owned them for at least one year. You may also avoid the capital gains taxes you would owe if you sold these securities.

There are many different ways to plan your gift to our organization, many of which can save you taxes now, reduce the tax burden on your estate, provide lifetime income to you (or another),  and provide a generous ultimate gift to Young Artists of America.

For more information on planned giving opportunities or gifts of stock, please contact Executive Director, Lisa Larragoite at (301) 272-8604, x700. 

I feel like the luckiest guy in the world right now. Thank you, Young Artists of America, for three unbelievable years of music and learning. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
