Donating Gifts of Stocks and Securities

Gifts of stocks and securities provide an appealing way for you to donate to the American Tinnitus Association (ATA). Contributors of stock receive a tax deduction for the market value of the securities, calculated on the day of their transfer, while avoiding payment of capital gains on the stock's appreciated value.

Please consult with your broker or adviser about the benefits of such a gift. The most efficient way to give a gift of stock is to have your broker electronically transfer shares to the American Tinnitus Association.

To donate securities electronically, please instruct your broker to make the transfer using our Depository Trust Company (DTC) number:

DTC number: 0015
Unrestricted account number: 164-116940-901
(Gift used for ATA’s current priority project)

Restricted account number: 164-117040-901
(Gifts restricted for research fund only)
