A gift of securities, bonds or shares in mutual funds may allow you to make a larger gift than otherwise possible. This can provide a two-fold tax benefit. You will not pay capital gain tax on appreciated stock, plus you can receive a charitable tax deduction for the value of the donated stock.
To donate securities, please instruct your broker to make the transfer using the following information:
BANK OF NEW YORK
FOR CREDIT TO: TD WEALTH / ACCOUNT # 806100
FOR FURTHER CREDIT TO: THE COOPER FOUNDATION / ACCOUNT # 689917011
Please contact us or have your broker notify us of the transfer in advance, so we can provide you with a prompt acknowledgment to serve as your tax receipt. Please provide us with the following information:
- Donor Name
- Donor Address
- Donor Phone Number
- Name of Security
- Number of Shares Transferred
- Planned Date of Transfer
- Restriction on Gift (if any)
