Stocks, Donor Advised Funds, & Non-Cash Gifts

Join us to support people living with autism and their families.  Donating your stock and other securities supports our mission and helps make it possible for Autism Speaks to Imagine What Can Be

Stock Gifts

One of the most advantageous ways to contribute to Autism Speaks is through a gift of stock.  Gifting stock is simple and offers valuable financial benefits:

  • You can donate appreciated stocks
  • The total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible
  • There is no obligation to pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciation

To contribute stocks, follow our 2 step instructions and complete the stock notification form

Step 1:  Complete Transfer

Instruct institution where stocks are held to transfer the shares to Autism Speaks account at UBS Painewebber and contact Marc Shegoski at (609) 919. 2331 using the following codes:

Autism Speaks Inc. Master Account #:  PT61005

DTC #: 221

AB #: 221

ID #: 0221

Tax Identification #: 20-2329938.

If your stock is in the form of a physical certificate please contact Leadership Giving at (646) 385.8699, as these types of donations may require different processing procedures.

Step 2:  Notify Autism Speaks of Gift

Stock donations transfer to Autism Speaks' account with no accompanying donor information. In order for Autism Speaks to identify your gift and send a tax receipt, please fill out this form to provide us with the gift details including the name of the stock, the number of shares, and date of transfer.

Donor Advised Fund

We gladly accept a grant from your donor advised fund. 

A donor advised fund, or (DAF), allows you to make a charitable contribution and recommend grants to support your favorite charities.  Please consider recommending Autism Speaks.
