Stock Donator - A Tax-Friendly Way To Donate

There is an easy way you can be the hero of our rescue and it’s by donating stock. Most importantly, it helps us continue to offer the support you’ve been reading about. But it can also help you avoid paying capital gains tax!

Many of you aren’t redeeming your stock because of the capital gains tax you would have to pay. An easy way to support our work is to donate that stock and it couldn’t be easier. You simply go to the top of our web page and click the “Donate Stock” button. You’ll get a confirmation as soon as the transaction is processed. Should you decide to give again next year, your information is saved. Such a simple way to be a hero!

Frequently Asked Questions from donors:

  • Which Stocks Should I Donate?

You should only donate stocks that have increased in value and that you’ve owned for at least one year. Stock sales are subject to capital gains tax and if the stock is less than a year old, the tax benefits are reduced. Also, if you sell a stock that has increased in value, you will have a larger capital gains tax burden at the time of sale. By donating it, you can lower your tax burden. Finally, you should donate publicly traded stocks.

  • I Am Interested In Hearing More About How This Can Help Me. Can You Explain A Bit More?

When you a redeem a stock that has increased in value, you must pay capital gains tax on the profit you’ve made. This allows you to donate to us while avoiding this tax. This helps you support us while not impacting your cash flow.

  • Is It Easy To Give This Way?

It is very easy. You simply go to our website and click on the green button on top right, “Donate Stock”. The website walks you through the donation process, so it isn’t hard. By donating this way, you quickly get a receipt you can use for your taxes. Should you decide to donate stock again, your information is saved so you only must fill out the information once.

Recycle via Oregon BottleDrop

BottleDrop Recycle programHow about helping CCR and also the Earth at the same time?

Cat's Cradle Rescue is now registered with the State sponsored bottle deposit program, BottleDrop, whereby CCR will receive bottle deposit returns to our account from the public. Here are how you can do this:

  1. Pick up a "BLUE BAG" with an attached barcode label from our adoption event, and fill it up with empty bottles to return to one of the many return locations listed on the BottleDrop website. Simply put the blue bag(s) to the direct return opening and those funds will automatically be credited to our account. It really just takes seconds! Note: Each bag costs CCR about 50 cents to process, so try and fill it up as much as you can!
  2. Go to a Main bottle return location (the ones with green markers on the map), return your bottles then specify the return deposit funds go to CCR.
  3. Already have a BottleDrop account (find out how to get one here)? Even better! Simply go to the BottleDrop website here, find "Cat's Cradle Rescue" (or any other local charities you want to support) using the search bar, log into your existing account and you can send the funds our way.

Kitty Wish List

Kitty wish listBesides opening up their homes and hearts for the kitties in need, our foster families also provide food and supplies necessary to keep our foster cats and kittens healthy and happy. Your generous donation will help ease their burden and enable us to save more lives.

For the health of our cats and the long-term benefits of quality food, we feed a mostly Grain-Free diet. In general, we avoid any cat or kitten food that has meat by-products, corn, soy or wheat. If you would like to donate food, please choose a brand free of these.

For example:

  • Royal Canin Baby & Mother Cat canned and dry
  • Blue Buffalo Kitten Healthy Growth
  • Petcurean Brand dry (Now, Gather, Go)
  • Weruva “Cats in the Kitchen”
  • Solid Gold dry
  • The following items are also needed on an ongoing basis:
  • Cat litter (clay or corn natural litter)
  • Dr.Elsey’s (multiple types) clumping
  • Cardboard scratchers and cat dancers
  • Carriers - can be new or gently used
  • Gift certificates to local Pet Stores for small amounts

Donation items may be dropped off or shipped to this address: 1982 NE 25th Avenue, Unit 2, Hillsboro, OR 97124. If we're lucky enough to possibly receive a large shipment of supplies from you or your company, please contact us directly to coordinate the best logistical drop-off or pick-up.
