WOCS encourages families to apply for the OSF scholarship. You need to complete a form for each child and include the first 2 pages of your federal income tax return. Submit the documents to the school by June 1.
METHODS OF GIVING
Donors may contribute to OSF either by check made out, and mailed to, the Opportunity Scholarship Fund; or by transfer of appreciated stocks and other marketable securities to an OSF brokerage account for conversion to cash.
If donating by check (monthly or yearly), download, complete and mail the appropriate Donor Form to OSF.
If donating appreciated stocks or other marketable securities, download, complete and mail the appropriate Donor Form to OSF. Have your broker follow the transfer instructions on the Donor Form to ensure the shares get into the OSF brokerage account.
Donors contributing by check will potentially enjoy three significant tax benefits. They are: 1) state income tax credits, 2) federal charitable contribution deduction, and 3) state charitable contribution deduction. For those transferring appreciated stock and other marketable securities, there is a fourth benefit. Your gift will also be exempt from capital gains tax!
