Donate stocks and securities

Florida's Vision Quest gratefully accepts securities and mutual funds as charitable donations. If your financial services provider holds securities, including mutual funds, in your account, you can have the securities electronically transferred to the Florida's Vision Quest brokerage. Your gift is complete on the date that the stock is transferred. The value of your gift will be the mean value of the stock on the transfer instruction date. Please contact info@flvq.org, or 386-917-1001 ext. 243 for further information on how to make the electronic transfer.

If you have stock certificates you would like to donate, please send the unendorsed certificate and a signed stock power, available from your financial services provider, in separate envelopes to Florida's Vision Quest, Inc., 167 North Industrial Drive, Orange City, FL 32763. Your gift will be complete on the date of the postmark of the later envelope. It is Florida's Vision Quest policy to sell all gifts of securities as soon as Florida's Vision Quest is notified of the transfer by its stockbroker. The proceeds are then applied to FVQ programs and related activities.

Please note that in the United States, if you would like to donate stock that has depreciated in value, selling the stock yourself and donating the amount you receive may enable you to write off the loss on your taxes.
