Make a Donation

You can donate online or by mail. Whatever you choose, we thank you for your commitment to keeping it wild. Supporting nearly 40 Broadbands across the country takes some considerable wrangling, training, and logistical support. Your donation contributes toward keeping our grassroots boots on the ground working for wilderness.

Gifts of Stock

Another easy way to contribute is by gifting stocks. There are benefits to such gifts:

  • Avoid capital gains taxes. Since Great Old Broads is a tax-exempt organization, we can liquidate them with no tax liability.
  • Even if the stocks have appreciated greatly, you can claim a charitable deduction for the full market value on the date of transfer and thus reduce your income tax liability. Consult your tax advisor for more information.
  • Gifting stock may reduce your estate tax liability.

Please call us for more information at 970-385-9577 or email  It is relatively simple to transfer stock from your brokerage account to our brokerage account.
