Gifts of Appreciated Stock/IRA Charitable Gifts

Do you have a bit of extra “nest egg” that you’d like to put to good use for birds?

Making a gift of appreciated publicly traded securities is an easy and smart way to support Bird Conservancy of the Rockies! Not only will your gift be put to immediate use protecting birds and their habitats, you may see capital gains and income tax benefits. We encourage you to discuss this option with your tax advisor.
