Ways To Give

Your Gift Can Transform Brain Health

One Mind relies on the generosity and partnership of donors like you to accelerate brain science and deliver new hope to those touched by brain injury and illness. There are a number of ways to make your gift.

One Mind appreciates gifts of cash by way of checks and wire transfer. Additionally, gifts of $25,000 or more can be pledged up to five years. If you are interested in making a multi-year pledge to further brain research, or need information on how to wire a gift, please call (707)963-4038.

Donating appreciated securities, including stocks and bonds, is an easy and tax-effective way for you to make a gift to One Mind. There are several benefits of giving gifts of stock and bonds:

  • Avoid paying capital gains tax on the sale of appreciated stock
  • Receive a charitable income tax deduction
  • Further our mission for brain health today!


How to make a gift with stocks and bonds:

By electronic transfer – Please contact us for instructions on how you can transfer stock or bonds from your brokerage or investment account to One Mind.

By certified mail – If you hold securities in certificate form, you will need to mail two envelopes separately to complete your gift. In the first envelope, place the unsigned stock certificate(s). In the other envelope, include a signed stock power for each certificate. You may obtain this power from your broker or bank. Please remember to use certified mail.


More on gifts of stocks and bonds

There are special rules for valuing a gift of stock. The value of a charitable gift of stock is determined by taking the mean between the high and low stock price on the date of the gift. Mutual fund shares are valued using the closing price for the fund on the date of the gift.
