Make a Matching Gift

Many companies offer matching gift programs that will double, even triple a donation's value. Check with your company to find out if your company will match your contribution to the Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Red Cross. If you have questions about your company's matching gift program, please contact your personnel office.

Once you have determined that your company matches donations made to the Red Cross, obtain the appropriate form from your personnel/human resources office and send it with a copy of your gift receipt to the address below:

Donate by Stock or Securities

Donating stock, bonds, or mutual funds that have gone up in value may be a tax-wise way for you to support the American Red Cross, Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter. First, you receive a federal income tax deduction for the full market value of the securities as long as you have owned them for at least one year. Second, you avoid the capital gains taxes that you would owe if you sold these securities.

For Stock Held in a Brokerage/Custodial Account

Tell your broker you would like to donate stock and decide which shares to sell. Your broker will then arrange for an electronic transfer. You will need to provide your broker with the following information about the American Red Cross Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter's account:

Muriel Siebert and Co., Inc.
C/O National Financial Services
Account Name: American Red Cross
Account Number: A72-627844
Tax ID#: 53-0196605
DTC Number: 0226

For Stock in Donor's Name in Certificate Form

The certificate needs to be signed on the back or sent with a separate signed stock power. The signature must appear exactly as it reads on the certificate. It will be easier for the Red Cross if you do not assign the stock over to us but instead simply sign the certificate or stock power. Once the stock/power is signed, the certificate is negotiable, and it is a good idea to send the documents via registered mail return receipt.


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 to the American Red Cross, Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter, to ensure that you receive the appropriate acknowledgement for your tax filings and recognition for your generosity.

  • Your name and complete address
  • The company name and number of shares of securities being transferred
  • Date of the transfer
  • The designation, if any, of your gift
  • Questions? Please contact Erik Michael at (215) 299-4033 or via email.

Donate Through a Bequest or Life Income Gift

Thoughtful gift planning can provide you and others with lifetime income, reduce your taxes (capital gains, income, estate), and allow you to make a significant gift that sustains the valuable services of the American Red Cross. Planned gifts include bequests and life-income gifts, such as charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts.

If you have questions or would like to share information about your estate plans, please contact James Sereno at (215) 299-4082 or via email.
