Support is urgently needed to help resettle Afghan evacuees

IINE anticipates welcoming more than 550 persecuted people to Massachusetts and New Hampshire in the next 12 months, including refugees and Afghan evacuees. A significant number of evacuees will not be immediately eligible for public assistance. These individuals will need case management, direct financial support, English language training, and more. Your support is urgently needed.

For stock held in brokerage accounts, your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to IINE. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save on brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.
