Your gift of stocks or other securities is a meaningful way to bring life-changing programs to CATA artists.
Gifts of appreciated assets offer valuable tax advantages and are easy to make! These tax savings—both in income and capital gains taxes—make gifts of securities a popular alternative to cash.
CATA also welcomes donations via wire transfer. Contact Alexandra Heddinger, Development Director, at Alex@CATAarts.org or (413) 528-5485 for more information.
