When you donate stock to the Friends of the Blue Hills, you give an amazing gift to the Blue Hills Reservation… and you may receive tax benefits as well.

Your donation of stock will care for the Blue Hills’ wildlife by keeping habitat healthy… and make sure visitors like you can enjoy miles of well-maintained trails and forests.

For example, giving stock may eliminate capital gains tax and may also give you a tax deduction that may benefit you financially… and be a tremendous gift to the Blue Hills too.
