Give By Stock
For stock held in brokerage accounts, your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to Operation Broken Silence. Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide better tax benefits than giving cash. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save on brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.
Please download the Stock Transfer Form, follow instructions to formalize and execute your charitable gift, and be sure to email the completed information on page 2 to the contact provided on the form. These steps will inform Operation Broken Silence of the proposed donation and ensure that you receive a receipt of your gift for your tax records.
If you are interested in donating other types of investments such as an extra retirement fund, a life insurance policy, or physical property, please contact us at info [at] operationbrokensilence [dot] org.
Gift Items We Need
From office supplies to updated camera gear to staff tech needs, we're a nonprofit on a tight budget and often times go without things we need.
Over the years, a number of generous donors have gifted us everything from camera gear to office supplies to computers to help us better serve the Sudanese people. We have created two Amazon Wishlists that includes a number of additional items we need.
We can provide you a tax-deductible receipt for any of the items you wish to gift us. Just shoot us an email at info [at] operationbrokensilence [dot] org after you purchase one of these items for us!
For Grantmakers & Large Donors
If you are looking to make a large contribution or represent a grantmaker seeking to fund life-changing work in Sudan, we encourage you to check out our 2019-2021 Giving Guide. This guide provides the bigger financial picture of what the programs we support and manage need on an annual basis.
The people of Sudan are overcoming two of the greatest challenges facing humanity today: war and genocide. Operation Broken Silence is working to accelerate their ability to generate lasting change through storytelling and movement-building, education and emergency response, and grassroots advocacy programs.
