Your generous charitable gift to Heifer will be valued at the median market price on the date of the gift, which is determined by the method of delivery.
In keeping with IRS regulation and Heifer Policy, Heifer International can only accept donations of commonly held, publicly traded stocks.
The easiest way for you to gift stock or securities to Heifer International is through an electronic transfer (DTC) from your brokerage account to Heifer’s account. Please remind your broker(age) to include all of the information including your name, contact information and special instructions for the transfer. This information is essential for timely acknowledgement. When stocks are transferred electronically, we are informed only of the stock name and the number of shares, not the name of the donor. Failure to share your gift intent with us may delay the gift acknowledgement for tax reporting purposes.
2 Easy Steps:
If you hold stocks or securities in certificate form, please mail your unendorsed paper certificates to our Broker, noted below with a Stock Power Form. A signed stock certificate is legal tender.
