Gift of stock to ADRA
One of the best ways to support ADRA is with a gift of stock or other securities such as bonds and mutual funds. Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value may provide greater tax benefits than giving cash if you have owned the stock for more than one year. Please discuss any potential tax benefits with your tax advisor, and your broker can assist you in making a direct transfer to ADRA International.
Please provide your broker with the following information when making a gift of stock to ADRA International:
Morgan Stanley Smith Barney
6230 Old Dobbin Lane. #100
Columbia, MD. 20145
Account Name: Adventist Development & Relief Agency
Account Number: 918-111587-402
DTC Number: 0015
Call or write our ADRA’s Donor Relations Office when transferring stock. We want to properly acknowledge your gift and provide you with information regarding your tax deduction. Contact information is below or you can use the online form at the end of this web page.
If you are considering a gift of physical stock certificates, direct registration shares, closely-held stock, stocks held on a foreign exchange, or mutual funds, the usual methods of giving stock may not apply. Please contact our ADRA’s Donor Relations Office.
