5. Use checks

For large ($1000+) donations, using checks instead of PayPal can save us significant fees.

Please write your check:

  • make it payable to "80-20 EF"
  • include your email in memo line (or email in advance)
  • mail to:
    Katy Woo
    939 Beach Dr. NE, Apt 910

6. Stock donation

Consider donating stocks which gained huge appreciation, instead of a check.

You don't pay "Capital Gains" tax on the large appreciation, while deducting the full market value of the stock as donation in your IRS filing.
