Gifts Of Securities

Securities are tradable interests with a financial value. They are often represented by a certificate and include shares of stocks, bonds or mutual fund units. A gift of appreciated securities is one of the most effective means of supporting KUOW while receiving income tax advantages.

Those who support KUOW through a gift of securities enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that their generosity ensures the future of public broadcasting in our region.
