Include Massachusetts Peace Action in your legacy

Consider also a trust, stock, bequest, or other planned gift, to keep our work strong for the next generation! Contact Cole Harrison, Executive Director, to discuss your plans.

Donate by check

Donations may be made by sending checks (payable to Massachusetts Peace Action or Massachusetts Peace Action Education Fund) to:

Massachusetts Peace Action
11 Garden Street
Cambridge, MA 02138

Gifts of Stock

Donating stock or securities offers a number of benefits:

  • A federal income charitable contribution tax deduction based on the stock’s fair market value on the date of the gift (up to 30% of your adjusted gross income) if the stock was owned for more than one year;
  • Carryover of the deduction for up to five additional years if the fair market value of the gift is more than 30% of your adjusted gross income; and
  • Avoidance of capital gains tax that is due when you sell appreciated stock.

Note: Stock owned for one year or less is considered a short-term asset and usually won’t produce attractive tax benefits.

If stock has decreased in value, selling it and making a cash gift to MAPA Education Fund is probably more beneficial. You can take a capital loss on federal taxes and still enjoy a charitable deduction up to 50% of your adjusted gross income.

To donate equities, give your broker this information:

Account Name:  Massachusetts Peace Action Education Fund

Account Number:  Charles Schwab, 9502-3465

DTC number: 0164.    DTC code: 40

Contact us (info@masspeaceaction.org or 617-354-2169) with the name of the stock and number of shares being transferred.  This will ensures the gift is properly credited and acknowledged.
