STOCK GIVING - Transferring appreciated stocks is a powerful way to support The Valerie Fund and avoid paying capital gains. By transferring stock to support our pediatric care, you can also deduct the full current value of the stock regardless of the price when you purchased it. To obtain stock transfer instructions, call us or email Lori Abrams, Director of Development, LAbrams@TheValerieFund.org.
