Gifts of appreciated stock are an easy and beneficial way to make a donation to support ACT. You receive credit for the full market value of the gift, and you avoid capital-gains tax. In order to assure that we received and properly acknowledge your stock gift, please follow the following steps.
Step 1: Contact Your Broker
Ask your stockbroker or brokerage to make a direct electronic transfer of the stock certificates to Alachua Conservation Trust account. Call us for account information 352.373.1078.
Give your broker our taxpayer identification number: 59-2919630
Step 1: Contact Alachua Conservation Trust
In order to properly acknowledge your gift please notify us as soon as your transfer instructions have been given to your broker. This is important because your broker will not necessarily notify us and our broker often does not know the originating source of the donation.
When you contact us please provide us with the name of the security or securities being transferred, the number of shares to be donated, and the name and phone number of your broker.
