- Support Out to Innnovate, our biennial cross-generational summit for LGBTQ+ people in STEM. Learn More.

Donate Stock. Consider donating stock that has appreciated in value. This is a win-win move. Donate stock and you won’t have to pay capital gains taxes on the profits, and the full value of the stock can be deducted as a charitable donation. Instruct your broker to transfer the stock to National Organization of Gay and Lesbian Scientists and Technical Professionals, Inc., Charles Schwab & Co account #6160-9599, DTC # 0164. Contact the NOGLSTP office for further information.
Payroll Deduction. Designate NOGLSTP as a beneficiary on your regular charitable (e.g., United Way) payroll deductions. See if your employer will match the donated funds.
Planned Giving. Designate NOGLSTP as a beneficiary of your life insurance or retirement assets; bequeath a gift to NOGLSTP from your estate via will or living trust.
Indirectly. Donate your old car, truck, RV or motorcycle to Cars 4 Causes and designate NOGLSTP as the beneficiary charity. Cars for Causes sells the car, then sends NOGLSTP a check.
