Donate Stock

A gift of stock and other securities is an easy way to benefit Gracewood. Your gift should be made through the Children At Heart Foundation for the benefit of Gracewood. A gift of appreciated stock is often more beneficial than cash, since the donor is eligible for a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the stock and does not have to pay capital gains tax on the sale of the stock by the charity.

The procedure for transferring stock depends on how the stock is held by the donor. Stock certificates should be delivered or mailed to the Children At Heart Foundation. A certified stock power certificate should also be delivered or mailed separately from the certificate. Stock held in street name by a broker can be transferred electronically. Donors are able to designate a particular ministry, program, or project to benefit from their gift, if they wish.

Here are some of the forms you will need to accomplish the transfer:

Electronic Transfer Process

The electronic delivery of stock shares is the most secure and expedient delivery process available and provides efficient internal control as well as cost savings. However, you may also transfer certificates directly. It is very important that the Children At Heart Foundation be notified before a stock transfer, as the name of the donor is generally omitted in the transfer. Special instructions are generally needed for mutual funds and other securities. Please follow the steps below and use the forms above to donate stock.


Step 1: INITIATE TRANSFER

There are three common methods of gifting securities to Children At Heart Foundation. The first is electronic transfer through which your broker can transfer shares using the Children At Heart Foundation DTC number. The second is to personally deliver stock certificates to the Children At Heart Foundation office. The third is to mail the paper certificates to Children At Heart Foundation.

If you use the electronic transfer method, you must contact your broker to initiate the transfer. Your broker may require the Sample Letter to Broker to authorize the transfer.
