Stocks and Mutual Funds

Stock

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

If Sending Electronically:
Ask your broker to donate through Muriel Siebert and Co., Inc., and they will sell the stock commission-free through the Siebert Charitable Stock Donation Program.

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

If Sending by Registered Mail:

NOTE: Certificates already registered in the name of the American Red Cross do not require either the stock waiver or stock power for execution of the transfer.

3. Notify the Red Cross by Filling Out the Form Below

Each time a gift of stock is donated, regardless of the method chosen to deliver a gift of stock, information about the gift for audit and acknowledgment purposes is needed. Fields with an asterisk are required.

  • Donor's full name and complete address
  • Name and number of securities transferred
  • Date of the transfer
  • Specific American Red Cross program or chapter to which gift should be directed, (if any)

Mutual Funds

Donating shares of mutual funds is a great way to support the Red Cross. 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.
