Stock Donation

Gifts of appreciated stock or mutual funds are another great way to give to JDRF. You get an income tax deduction for the full fair market value of securities you have owned more than one year—subject to the usual limitations—and capital gains taxes will be completely avoided on these assets.

To transfer securities to JDRF, please contact Gary Curto at 212-479-7551 or email him at
