Gifts of Stock
Donating shares of stocks or bonds is a great way to support TLDEF. You’ll receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of a gift of appreciated securities held longer than one year.
Stock held at a brokerage account can be delivered electronically through the Depository Trust Company (DTC) program. Your broker will need this information, and will have you fill out certain forms to complete the transaction. This type of transfer can usually be done within 24 hours of the request being submitted to DTC.
If you don’t have a brokerage account, and wish to transfer paper stock certificates, please contact us for assistance. Also, if you’re interested in donating mutual funds to TLDEF, please contact us for assistance, as that cannot be done through the DTC program.
