In an age of dramatic inequality across a range of social indices, with a dire need to build patterns of sustainable living, we are delighted to support VYCC, an organization that mirrors our values and concerns. Empowering youth and young adults in their growth toward independence, learning leadership skills and the importance of hard work, is a fabulous way to nurture and grow a future of promise and hope.

Gifts of appreciated securities (stock) have two tax advantages for the donor. The capital gains tax that would otherwise apply if you sold the shares yourself can be avoided, and you receive a tax deduction for the average market value of the shares on the day they are gifted to VYCC. Once you have initiated the transfer with your broker, please notify Naomi Galimidi at (802) 434-3969. This will ensure the gift is promptly processed.
