Donate Stock to CCFA

Your gift of appreciated stock will not only help us achieve our mission-critical goals, but it is also an easy, tax-smart way for you to give to CCFA. When giving appreciated stock, you'll receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock or mutual fund, and you'll avoid capital gains tax. It's a "win-win" gift for both you and CCFA!

Because electronic transfers often arrive with no donor name attached, we ask that when donating stock you contact the Foundation at 646.943.7425 with your name and the number and type of shares of your donation. This allows us to attribute your gift correctly, send you the proper tax documentation, and thank you for your generosity and support.

If you have the stock in a brokerage account:

Step 1:  Write a letter to your broker asking him to transfer XX number of shares of XX stock into CCFA's name.  In the letter include the stock's name and symbol, number of shares being transferred, donor name and the name of the firm sending the transfer.  Include the following information:

State Street Bank Corp.

A/C# 70-777301

Account Name: Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America

DTC # 987

FFC: BJ63

CCFA Tax ID: 13-6193105

Please indicate whether your gift is to be directed to a specific event or program.

Send your letter to:   Francis Smith at fps@capgroup.com or Alexis Keller at ammk@capgroup.com

Step 2: Send a copy of your letter of instructions to:

Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America
Attn: Angela Chen
733 3rd Ave
Suite 510
New York, NY 10017

If you prefer, you can email it to achentemp@ccfa.org

It is important that you let us know you are making this gift, as electronic transfers often arrive with no donor name, and without your notification we will be unable to send you the proper tax documentation for your gift.

If you hold the stock certificate:

  • Sign a stock power for each certificate and have your signature medallion guaranteed. 
  • Include a letter requesting transfer into CCFA's name.
  • Then mail the stock power and the stock separately (this is to ensure against fraud if the  envelope is lost) to the following address ...
State Street Global Markets
Attn: Fred Menis
One Lincoln Street/SFC 5
Boston, MA 02111
Phone: 617-664-6278

Please provide notification and gift details to:

* Francis Smith at fps@capgroup.com or Alexis Keller at ammk@capgroup.com

* Amanda Monaghan at amonaghan@ccfa.org or mail a copy of the letter to:

Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America

Gifts of Mutual Funds: CCFA can no longer accept gifts of mutual funds.  We ask that you please liquidate and then make a gift to CCFA.
