From Editor Robert Parry: At the suggestion of one of our readers, Consortiumnews.com has opened a “broker’s account,” which means that people can now donate stock or other equities to our non-profit journalism organization.
I’m told there can be a tax advantage in such donations if the stock in question has appreciated in value since it was purchased.
If this option for supporting our investigative reporting appeals to you, I suggest you discuss it with your broker and then contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for specific instructions on the stock transfer. Or you can write to us at Consortium for Independent Journalism (CIJ); 2200 Wilson Blvd., Ste. 102-231; Arlington VA 22201.
Of course, we continue to welcome old-fashioned cash donations, too.
