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.
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 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.
