Stock Donation

A gift of publicly-traded securities can have tax advantages to the donor as well as support the mission of Direct Relief. Please consult your tax advisor. Should you choose to gift shares, please notify Direct Relief of the transfer so that we may send you proper credit for your donation. Direct Relief will then send you an acknowledgement letter showing a description of the securities and the date the transaction took place.
