Stocks and Mutual Funds

Donating shares of stocks or mutual funds is a great way to help those in need.


Thank you for your interest in support of the American Red Cross. To help you facilitate a gift of stock, please use the following three simple steps:
Step 1 - Initiate the Stock Transfer

Securities can be gifted to the Red Cross in two ways: either via electronic transfer (in which your broker transfers shares using the Red Cross DTC number) or by physically mailing the paper certificates to the Red Cross. Either method is acceptable, but it is necessary for you to contact your broker to initiate the transfer. Click here to download a sample letter for your use.

Step 2 - Send the Securities to the Red Cross

Step 3 - Notify the Red Cross by Filling Out the Form Below

Mutual Funds

Electronic delivery of mutual fund shares is the most secure and expedient delivery process available and provides efficient internal control as well as cost savings. The Red Cross has accounts open at many of the large fund companies, which is necessary to initiate the transfer. However, we recommend that you contact us to confirm if an account number is available. It may be necessary for us to initiate an account to accept transfers of shares.
