Saving While You Give



Rose Brooks Center is excited to share a new way to give without reaching for your wallet! With finances top of mind, it may feel difficult to make the impact you want this year. But if you own appreciated stock, you can donate them to make a difference, and potentially gain favorable tax benefits.

In addition to the standard benefits of stock giving (there is no capital gains tax to pay on your donation!), the value of the Missouri Domestic Violence Tax Credit is now 70%. For example, if you donate $1,000 of stocks to Rose Brooks, you can submit a brief application and receive $700 back on your Missouri taxes.

P.S. As another year comes to an end, my heart is full. It’s full of respect for the caring professionals who work here, and full of awe for the incredible generosity of donors like you, who make our life-saving services possible. Whether it’s an online gift, a check in the mail, a gift of stock, or remembering Rose Brooks Center in your will, your support means the world to so many. Thank you.
