Give Securities

A gift of appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares you have owned for more than one year is frequently the most economical way to give.

How it Works

You transfer appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares you have owned for more than one year to New Song Community Learning Center. New Song sells your securities and uses the proceeds for our programs. When you make a securities gift, please notify the Development Office at 410-728-2091 with the details of your gift, including name of the security and the number of shares.


You may receive an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer (even if you originally paid much less for them). In most cases you pay no capital gains tax on the transfer when the stock is sold. Giving appreciated stock can be more beneficial than giving cash. The “cost” of your gift is often less than the deduction you gain by making it.

Dear friend and supporter of New Song Community Learning Center and Academy:

We need your help. Whenever schools are closed and education comes to a grinding halt, our children in urban communities suffer disproportionately. To ensure the students of New Song Academy do not fall behind educationally during this shutdown, we are reaching out to our friends and supporters to help us raise $50k to build an emergency fund to support critical emerging needs of our students and families — academic/educational resources, basic necessities, technology, etc.

With academics moving online for the foreseeable future, we want to ensure our students have the tools necessary to continue learning during this unprecedented shut down of physical sites and migrating to distance learning while sheltering in place. Comcast has announced it will increase bandwidth speeds for all customers, and will provide 60 days of free Internet services to new families. While this is a generous offer, it only has value if our students have the  devices needed to access their study materials.

These are challenging times for all of us, and even more now for the families in Sandtown-Winchester. Our parents and teachers are committed to ensuring our students continue to receive the very best of educational opportunities. Covid-19 or not, the New Song students need to have access to educational online learning opportunities for as long as this shutdown continues. NSCLC has a broad strategy to continue to support our school community.

The Covid-19 pandemic has further illustrated the educational divide that exists within our school system. Elite public schools have comparable systems in place to meet the changing needs of students with PTO’s and alumni who can support current efforts. We are unique and elite in so many ways regarding how we receive, feed, nurture and love our children and by extension their parents and have been doing so for almost 30 years.

A couple of weeks ago a wonderful collaboration developed between Catholic Charities, Safe Streets, New Song Academy Family School Council and NSCLC. Our families and community residents are hungry, many of them hourly wage earners having lost their job to the economics of COVID-19. Two weeks ago we served 1500 over five days, and again the following week. We are now up to 2500 meals a week. We will continue to serve 2500 meals per week through the month of April.

As we adjust to this new normal, I hope you will make a commitment and contribution to the educational uprising of Sandtown-Winchester. This emergency fund helps us to respond to increasingly complex needs we are seeing on a daily basis and rapidly changing from week to week.
