Make Your Financial Contribution from a Stock or Mutual Fund. Donating stocks, bonds or mutual funds is good for homeless individuals and veterans and good for you! A-SPAN solicits and accepts gifts of stock, bonds and mutual funds. Appreciated securities that you have owned for more than one year could qualify for a charitable income-tax deduction for the full fair market value. And you don’t pay capital gains taxes, so you may save twice on taxes. Click here for the A-SPAN Stock Donation Policy.
