“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.”

In addition to supporting life-changing experiences for youth and young adults, your gift of stock (appreciated securities) has tax advantages for you. You can avoid capital gains tax that would apply if you sell the shares yourself, 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, Director of Community Engagement at or (802) 448-5973. This ensures we process your gift promptly.

Donating cryptocurrency is a tax efficient method to support the important work Corps Members complete. The IRS designates cryptocurrency (or virtual currency) as property and is subject to the same rules that apply to noncash charitable gifts. You can avoid capital gains tax on the appreciated amount, and can deduct it on your taxes.

You may also benefit from a tax deduction at market value (if the currency has been owned for a year). Donors can carry forward any unused deduction and receive tax benefits for an additional five years. (Source: Forbes)
