Procedure for Donating Securities (Stock)
Thank you for considering donating securities (stock) to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Whether you transfer the shares via your broker or if you mail in a certificate, you will want to notify the Donations-in-Kind Office of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by phone, (800) 453-3860, or email of your donation so you can receive proper credit and a receipt. Please include the following information:
- Name & Address
- Name of security and number of shares being donated
- Allocation of Donation (i.e. Tithing, Humanitarian, etc.)
- Name and unit number of your ward or branch
Once we have received confirmation from our brokerage that the shares are in the Church's account, a charitable contribution tax receipt will be sent to you. The value of the donations will be the average of the high and low trading price for the date the shares are transferred to our account, or the certificate is deposited. If you have any questions, please contact the Donations-in-Kind office at (800) 453-3860 ext 22554 or by email.
