Songwriters, volunteers, friends and other supporters can donate to WCS through gifts other than cash. These may include gifts of stocks, life insurance policies, bequests, and charitable trusts. Also referred to as "planned gifts," these types of gifts are important in maintaining West Coast Songwriters financial vitality and ensure that future generations continue to benefit from WCS’s programs and services. Making charitable contributions in the form of appreciated securities entitles the donor the opportunity to avoid capital gains tax while receiving a charitable gift tax deduction for the full market value of the stock (actual deductible value is determined by taking the average of the high and low of the security market value on the day of the stock transfer to West Coast Songwriters). Persons interested in making a gift of securities to WCS should contact Ian Crombie at (650) 654-3966 to discuss transfer of stock options.
