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 attribtue 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.
Account Name: Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America
DTC # 987
CCFA Tax ID: 13-6193105
Please indicate whether your gift is to be directed to a specific event or program.

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 ...
Please provide notification and gift details to:
* Francis Smith at email@example.com or Alexis Keller at firstname.lastname@example.org
* Amanda Singer at email@example.com or mail a copy of the letter to:Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of AmericaAttn: Amanda Singer386 Park Avenue South, 17th FloorNew York, NY 10016
