Donating stocks and securities is a common avenue for our supporters to make impactful donations to EAC. These donations can have substantial tax benefits for our supporters and can make a significant impact in helping EAC to achieve its mission to tackle the most pressing environmental issues of our time.
To make donating stocks and securities to EAC simple and easy. Here is some helpful information to guide you in the steps.
- Fill out the EAC Stocks and Securities Donation Form. This can be completed by yourself or your financial advisor.
- Email your completed form to EAC’s Financial Controller.
- Keep one copy for your records.
The process to donate stocks and securities to EAC can take two to three weeks to complete. EAC will be notified by your financial institution once the stocks and securities have been donated. At that time, EAC will immediately sell the stocks, regardless of current market conditions. Once the transaction is complete, and EAC has received the donation into our accounts from our broker, you will be notified.
Your tax receipt will be emailed to you from EAC within 48 hours of the donation. If you would like to have a physical copy of the receipt printed, we would be happy to provide that for you. It will be mailed out the month following your donation. Please notify your broker if you would like a physical tax receipt.
If you have any further questions about this process, please contact our Community Giving Manager.
