Thank you for considering a gift of securities in support of The Nicholas J. Pernokas Recreation Park.
Gifting securities has significant financial benefit for both the Wolfeboro Area Recreation Association (WARA) and the donor. Securities that have appreciated in value, are deductible at market value, regardless of the original purchase price. The donor avoids capital gains tax liability (if applicable), receives a tax deduction for their donation, and potentially makes a contribution greater than a cash equivalent. WARA then benefits by selling the stock at market value without paying taxes on the gain.

Before a transfer is made, we ask that you please notify us with the date of transfer, name of security, and number of shares gifted so we can monitor our account for the expected transfer. Please do so by emailing holly@thenick.org, by mail; PO Box 838, Wolfeboro NH, 03894, or by calling us at (603) 569-1909. Please also be sure to consult your financial advisor before making a transfer.

All securities gifts should be registered or titled as follows:
Wolfeboro Area Recreation Association
Tax ID #: 02-0495737
All securities gifts should be directed to the following Fidelity Brokerage Account
Account #: 645-286409
