Give Stock or Securities

Transferring stock or securities is an excellent way to support the mission of the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center.

A gift of stock or securities may provide significant benefits, such as:

  • Elimination of capital gains tax that would ordinarily become due if you had sold the appreciated stock or securities on the open market and donated the proceeds of the sale to the Berrie Center;
  • Increased value for your gift to the Institute and decreased cost to you;
  • A charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the gifted stock or securities.

Please notify us of the type of stock or securities and number of shares that you wish to give, as well as how the funds should be directed (where funds are needed most, tribute, pledge payment, specific program/area, etc.). We will provide you with the information you and your broker will need to initiate the transfer.
