Ways to Give a Tax-deductible Donation

The Drug Policy Alliance is a 501c3 private, non-profit organization. We depend entirely on private donations to fund our work to end the war on drugs and promote new drug policies based on science, compassion, health and human rights. Your support is crucial - thank you!
Gifts to the Drug Policy Alliance are fully tax-deductible as allowed by law.

Maximize your gift by donating stock

The benefits of a stock donation are two-fold: not only is the contribution tax-deductible—which would also be the case with a check—but you pay no capital gains tax on the appreciated value of the stock.
For example, if you were to contribute stock, bonds or mutual funds currently worth $2,500 – that had been purchased years ago for $500 – the full $2,500 would be tax-deductible and you would pay no tax on the $2,000 gain.
