Stock Donations

Stock donations are a wonderful way to support nonprofits, as they provide valuable resources to fund important programs and initiatives. Additionally, donors can enjoy meaningful tax advantages by contributing appreciated stocks, allowing them to make a positive impact while also receiving potential tax deductions and avoiding capital gains taxes. It’s a win-win situation that spreads warmth and support to causes we care about.

If you’re interested in donating stock to JVS, contact us at

Fundraise for JVS

Start a fundraiser on Facebook or another platform to introduce your friends to JVS and encourage their donations. We’d be happy to provide photos, stories and receipts for these tax-deductible donations.

Since its founding, I have been a proud supporter of Jewish Vocational Service. Its work is critical to our Bay Area community. It is heartfelt and so meaningful to know that with a gift to JVS I can help individuals develop their potential through training and professional guidance, bringing a sense of dignity and respect to each one.

In my work, I leverage the framework that JVS has designed to support nonprofits to scale their onboarding programs and bring more diverse people into the field of tech. I support JVS because of their innovative programs that help immigrants and people from marginalized backgrounds find jobs that pay livable Bay Area wages.

~ Hakeem Oseni II, JVS Board Member & Program Alum

I made a donation to JVS because it means a great deal to me to be able to give back, especially during this critical time. I hope that the community can also benefit from JVS’s services as much as I have.

I support JVS generously because it is one of the few organizations truly addressing economic inequality at the core. By helping jobseekers find great jobs with real career paths to achieve greater economic mobility, JVS is increasing representation at local companies, and impacting families for generations to come.

~ Kirsten Wolberg, President, JVS Board of Directors
