Make a Gift of Stock
Gifts of appreciated stock are an easy and beneficial way to make a donation to support SSLT. You receive credit for the full market value of the gift and you avoid capital-gains tax on that stock. In order to assure that we receive and properly acknowledge your stock gift, please take the following steps:
- Contact your broker. Ask your stockbroker or brokerage firm to make a direct electronic transfer of the stock certificates to the St. Simons Land Trust account. Please call Emily Ellison at (912) 638-9109 for account information.
- Contact us. 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 will 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.
Many Land Trust supporters choose to participate in their company’s corporate matching program. Be sure to check with your employers to see if they offer donor matches for employees.
