Securities

Make a bigger impact by donating long-term appreciated securities, including stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, directly to Seedlings. These gifts have enabled us to upgrade some of our aging, specialized equipment and to fund special book giveaways.

Compared with donating cash, or selling your appreciated securities and contributing the after-tax proceeds, you may be able to increase your gift and your tax deduction. Consult your attorney or tax professional for more information.

Before a transfer of stock is made, please contact us at [email protected] with the name of the stock(s), number of shares, donor’s brokerage house and contact name, and donor name(s), so we may monitor our account for the expected transfer and process your gift accurately.

Brokerage: Charles Schwab
DTC Number: 0164, Code 40
Title of Account: Seedlings Braille Books for Children
Account Number: 65264771
