Other ways to give.

There are a wide variety of ways you can support our programs.

Stock

STOCK DONATIONS

Transferring stock shares is a common way individuals elect to donate to TAF. When you five TAF a gift of stock that you’ve held for at least 18 months and has increased in value, you are able to:

  • Claim a charitable gift deduction on your current year taxes
  • Avoid paying capital gains taxes you would otherwise owe if you sold the stock yourself
  • Avoid paying broker fees on the sale

TAF accepts stock gifts through a simple stock transfer process. To receive the full tax benefit, it’s very important that you donate your appreciated stock directly to our broker, Charles Schwab.

To learn more about the process, download TAF Stock Donation (pdf). For questions, email katherinem@techaccess.org.

Employee Matching

EMPLOYEE GIFT MATCHING

Many companies offer employee gift matching to help stretch the charitable donations their employees support.

Here’s a list of Seattle-based gift matching companies that have employees who give to TAF:

  • Alaska Airlines
  • Boeing
  • Microsoft
  • Expedia
  • IBM
  • Starbucks
  • Wells Fargo

Please check with your benefits department to see whether you can make your gift go farther through matching.

If your company offers gift matching, first make your donation, and then submit the appropriate paperwork in order for TAF to receive the company match.

Mail Cash or Check

MAIL CASH OR CHECK

Perhaps mailing in a cash or check donation is more convenient for you. Here’s how you can address your gift:

Technology Access Foundation
Attn: Development
605 SW 108th Street
Seattle, WA 98118

Once we receive your tax-deductible donation, we’ll mail you an acknowledgment letter that you can keep for your tax records.
