Giving stock and securities is a quick, easy way to support AmeriCares, as well as one of the most cost-effective and tax-wise ways to fulfill your charitable and financial goals.

To transfer stock or securities to AmeriCares:

Your broker can transfer stock electronically to our account at The Northern Trust Company. For instructions, please contact our Donor Relations Department at (203) 658-9500 or You may also call toll-free at 1-800-486-HELP (4357)

Because complete donor information in electronic transfers is not always provided, please alert us in advance of your transfer regarding the stock name and number of shares you plan to give.

For physical transfers of stock certificates, please contact us for more information.

Once transfers are complete, we will provide you with proper tax acknowledgement. Please note that the IRS dictates that stocks be valued based on the average stock price on the date they are received into our account, which may differ from your statement value.
