Stocks, IRA, and Donor Funds

Make a gift to Vermont Public the way that works best for you. Below are a few more popular options

Gifts of Stock
Giving appreciated stocks and other securities is a tax-wise way to support public media. For securities held longer than one year, you can deduct their full fair market value, regardless of what you originally paid for them while avoiding a capital gains tax. To make a gift of stock, you simply set up a stock transfer.

Please transfer securities directly to Vermont Public account with Mill Creek Capital Advisors:

National Financial Services LLC
New York, NY
DTC # 0226
F/B/O Vermont Public Co.
A/C # BPV000068
Vermont Public Co. Tax ID: 85-2913577

For questions regarding the transfer itself:

Michael H. Jordan | Mill Creek Capital Advisors, LLC
161 Washington Street, Suite 1500 | Conshohocken, PA 19428
Direct Dial: (610) 941-9794 | Cell: (610) 608-4663 | Fax: (610) 941-9792

Please notify our development team when making a gift of stock to let us know that you have initiated the transfer.

IRA Rollover
You may want to consider using the Charitable IRA Rollover option to make a gift to Vermont Public. If you are 70½ years old or older, you can make a donation of up to $100,000 directly from your individual retirement accounts without first having to recognize the distribution as income. The IRA charitable rollover is very popular with taxpayers and beneficial to charities. It’s a unique way to support Vermont Public's mission as an essential and trusted independent voice for news, information, music and cultural exploration for the people of our region. Checks can be sent to:
