When donating stock, most people simply transfer the stock directly to United Way, rather than selling it and donating the proceeds. This allows you to claim a charitable contribution in the amount of the average of the high and low stock price on the day of the transfer, and United Way is responsible for any fees related to the sale of the stock. For more information on donating stock contact Rhonda Wolf, 503-363-1651, ext. 315
