Gifts of stock and securities can be made to The Walden Woods Project. There are potential tax advantages associated with giving stock, bonds, or mutual funds. We advise you to check with your broker or accountant to determine if a gift of stock is the right option for you. When making a gift of stock or securities, please reach out to us in advance by email at wwproject@walden.org or by phone at 781-259-4700 to inform us of the upcoming gift. We will be able to provide you with information needed for your broker to make the transfer.   We will need the following information on our end to complete the gift: the name of stock/security; the number of shares gifted; and the name of the donor/contact information.
