Donating Stock

Back to Planned Giving

A charitable gift of stock provides an opportunity for tax savings while generously supporting Equal Access. 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. To help you facilitate a gift of stock, please use the following instructions. We will contact you for arrangements regarding electronically transferred securities.

Notification of Donor Intent

Regardless of the method chosen to deliver a gift of stock, the donor or the transferring broker must provide the following information, for audit and acknowledgement purposes:

* Donor’s name and complete address
* Name and number of securities transferred
* Broker’s name and phone number
* Approximate dollar value of gift

You may provide a letter, or send an e-mail to communicate this information at time of transfer to:

San Francisco, CA 94102
