Often donors find it convenient to use their stocks, or securities, as a way of making gifts to the American Red Cross.
To facilitate a gift of stock, we have provided the following instructions. If you have questions, please contact the Financial Development Director at (603) 225-6697 x226.
Step 1: INITIATE TRANSFER
There are two common methods of gifting securities to the American Red Cross. The first is Electronic transfer through which your broker can transfer shares using the Red Cross DTC number. The other is 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.
