Donations of Stocks or Other Special Assets by U.S. Donors:
We welcome gifts of stocks or other special assets that you may choose to donate to benefit the girls of Hekima Place! For more information, please contact our U.S. office at 412-745-8400. Please consult with your tax professional for advice.
There may be tax advantages to transferring ownership of an investment, such as stocks, real estate, or other assets, to Hekima Place as a charitable donation, if that asset has increased in value since its purchase and has been held for more than one year. Donating the appreciated asset directly to Hekima Place can help you, the donor, avoid or reduce capital gains taxes, while still allowing you to receive the full contribution credit for the current market value of the asset. Because Hekima Place is a tax-exempt charity, we can then sell the asset and receive the full market value (less small transaction costs), making the impact of your donation even greater! (This information should not be considered tax or legal advice; please consult with your tax professional.)
In addition to monetary donations, Hekima Place gratefully accepts in-kind donations based upon current and most urgent need. Please contact the U.S. Administration Office for details on what kinds of donations we are able to accept and ship to Kenya. Because of the prohibitive cost of shipping to Kenya, we often ask visiting volunteers to carry donations from North America with them on their trips. We therefore prioritize the donated goods that are most urgently needed, and we must evaluate each visitor’s ability to hand-carry items on a case-by-case basis.
