Individual and Family Giving

Today, adults, youth and children across our community are experiencing homelessness, escaping abuse, and in need of support following sexual assault. Doorways relies on the generosity of people like you to provide community-based support, emergency shelter, long-term supportive housing, and more. By donating to Doorways, you provide pathways to safe, stable and empowered lives, tailored to each individual or family’s unique needs.

Gifts of Stock

It is Doorways’ policy that donations of stock are sold as soon as they are received. Doorways will recognize, for accounting purposes, the value received upon sale. Donors are encouraged to consult with their own legal and tax advisors concerning the tax implications of a stock donation and how the value of a donation is reported to tax authorities.

When a stock is transferred, the names of donors are not generally communicated from the donor’s brokerage firm to Doorways’ brokerage firm. Donors are asked to notify Doorways of a stock donation prior to transfer so that we can properly credit and acknowledge the gift. Additional stock donation information is available here (open PDF document). For questions or for stock gift notification, please contact Joy Myers, Chief Development Officer at or (703) 504-9290.
