Support

The Mission of the Historic Oakland Foundation is to partner with the city of Atlanta to preserve, restore, enhance and share Oakland Cemetery with the public as an important cultural resource and an island of tranquility in the heart of the city.

As the guardians of Historic Oakland Cemetery, we want to engage as many people as possible in the protection and promotion of Atlanta’s most tangible link to the past. Donations of any amount will help ensure that this beautiful park is available for future generations to enjoy.

Stock
Gifts of stock, especially long-term appreciated stock, provide benefits to both Historic Oakland Foundation and you. The Foundation can put your funds to work immediately and you can:

  • Give appreciated assets and usually avoid tax on the gain
  • Receive the regular charitable income tax deduction if you itemize your taxes.
  • Claim a tax deduction for the full market value (rather than the cost value) of your stock if you have owned the securities for more than one year.

Gift Matching
If your company participates in a matching gift program, consider applying your donation to Historic Oakland Foundation. Check with your company’s human resources department to see if your company matches donations.
