A Stock Option that Generates a Lot Green!

TreesCharlotte is supported by the TreesCharlotte Foundation, which is housed at Foundation For The Carolinas. It is very easy to make a stock gift to the TreesCharlotte Foundation, though you should consult your tax advisor before making a gift or pledge.

To make the gift, simply call or email Donor Relations at 704-973-4529 or donorrelations@fftc.org. Susan Nelson oversees stock donations at FFTC.

Your gift of stock is tax deductible and you will not pay capital gains tax on any stock you transfer (please check with your tax advisor for verification). After the transfer is complete, please contact Dave Cable to let us know about your gift.

If you have any questions, please contact Dave Cable at 704-577-2004 or by email at dave@treescharlotte.org.
