Innovative Ways to Make a Difference for the Homeless

Beyond Cash

At Springs Rescue Mission, we believe in the power of generosity to transform lives. While traditional cash donations play a crucial role in supporting our mission to combat homelessness, there are also innovative and tax-efficient ways to contribute that you may not be aware of.

Here are some alternative ways you can make a lasting impact:

Give Monthly
Stocks and Securities

Did you know that donating appreciated stocks or securities can be a tax-smart way to support your cause? By gifting stocks you've held for more than one year, you may be eligible for a charitable deduction, the Homeless Contribution Tax Credit, and can potentially avoid capital gains taxes.

Work with your broker to send the stock directly to our UMB brokerage account. Below is SRM’s account information on where to send the stock.
