We believe big changes happen one person at a time, and so TCE Fund provides resources for the door-to-door canvassing work in partnership with our sister organization, Texas Campaign for the Environment. Canvassing enables us to reach diverse communities across many areas of the state. Our supporters share a common concern for the environment and a respect for the individual who comes to their doorstep with an important public health issue. You can contribute when our canvassers visit your community or call you on the phone – and you can give online at any time, of course. (Contributions to TCE Fund are tax-deductible if you are itemizing.)
gifts of stock
You can also support TCE Fund by contributing stocks or securities. Your gift 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 if you held them for more than one year. You may also save by not incurring brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock. As an added benefit, you may be entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the fair market value of the securities at the time of the transfer. You can make your gift of stocks as an outright gift or by placing a transfer on death (TOD) designation on your investment account. To learn more about gifts of stock, please contact our Administrative Director at 512-326-5658 or Vic(at)texasenvironment(dot)org.
vehicle donations and personal property
Do you have an old automobile you’re not using that’s just taking up space in your driveway or garage? Don’t send it to the junkyard – donate it to help us raise money. You’ll get a tax write-off. It doesn’t matter if it runs or what shape it’s in. (It doesn’t even have to be a car – we can take boats, motorcycles and RVs.) There’s free towing, so there’s no work for you. It’s as easy as filling out this online form and then watching us come and get it. You can also donate other forms of personal property, such as art, antiques, and collections. Learn more and make your donation here.
