One of the most advantageous ways to contribute to the ACLU Foundation is via a gift of stock, or other securities, such as bonds or mutual funds. The total value of your gift is tax-deductible provided it has been held for at least one year, and there is no obligation to pay any capital gains tax on the appreciated value. The gift is fully deductible as of the date it arrives in our account.
Following is the information necessary to transfer stock to our account:
If your stock is held in brokerage account, your broker can transfer your gift electronically. He or she will need the following information:
DTC #: 0226
Account Name: ACLU Foundation
Account #: AB2-027707
Brokerage: State Street Global Markets, Boston, MA
If you hold the security's paper certificate, you may mail it without any endorsement or assignment to:
American Civil Liberties Union Foundation
Attn: Jeffrey Outler
125 Broad Street, 18th Floor

In a separate envelope, mail or deliver a signed stock power form for each gift – except for your signature, the stock power form should be blank – and a letter stating your intention to make a gift of the securities to the ACLU Foundation.
