Gifts of Stock

Donating securities to American Forests is a terrific way to support our conservation mission. One benefit of donating appreciated securities, like stock, is that the tax savings enable you to make a gift at less cost than if you were to donate the equivalent amount in cash outright.

How It Works

Donating securities is typically done electronically through your broker. Most brokerage firms will require a letter of intent from you to request the transfer. Letting us know of your intent to donate in advance will ensure that our broker is aware of your gift and is actively looking for it.
