Donating Stocks and Securities

Appreciated securities are perhaps the most cost-effective assets to use in making a gift.

When you transfer ownership of long-term holdings to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, you receive a charitable deduction for their full market value—and you incur no capital gains tax (subject to IRS deduction limits).

Because the donor's information in electronic transfers are not always complete, please alert us in advance about the stock and number of shares you plan to give. You can do so by e-mailing stockgiving@unicefusa.org or calling Probyn Cope at 212.922.2470.

According to IRS regulations, the date of your gift corresponds to the date it arrives in our possession (for transfers from brokerage account to brokerage account). Following is the information necessary to transfer stock to our account:
