We accept donations of commonly held, publicly traded stocks. You can donate stock by electronic or certificate transfer. By sharing your shares with others, you are helping establish a cycle of change for communities around the world.
The easiest way to gift stock or securities to Heifer is through an electronic transfer (DTC) from your brokerage account to Heifer’s account.
Fill out our Online Stock Gift Notification Form.
Complete the Electronic Transfer Authorization Form (PDF) and provide it to your broker. This will provide your broker with all the information they need to complete a transfer on your behalf.
Please remind your broker to include your name, contact information and special instructions for the transfer. When stocks are transferred electronically, we are informed only of the stock name and the number of shares, not the name of the donor, unless you authorize your broker to share this information with us. Failure to share your gift intent may delay the gift acknowledgement for tax reporting purposes.
If you hold stocks or securities in certificate form, you can send your unendorsed certificates with an accompanying Stock Power Form to our broker. A signed stock certificate is legal tender.
Complete a Notification of Stock Transfer Form (PDF) and return to us via fax, email or mail.
Print a blank Stock Power Form (PDF) for each certificate.
Take the Blank Stock Power Form(s) to your bank to have your signature Medallion Signature Guaranteed.
For security purposes, send the documents in two separate envelopes to Heifer International’s broker via USPS registered mail with return receipt requested.
The legal gift date for securities electronically transferred is the day they are received in our account.
The legal gift date for certificates that are mailed is determined by the postmark date on the envelope.
In keeping with IRS regulation and Heifer Policy, Heifer International can only accept donations of commonly held, publicly traded stocks.
We want your donating process to be as smooth as possible. Please reach out to us if you have any questions.
