Make a Gift of Securities

Accion welcomes tax-deductible contributions in the form of securities. This is a particularly powerful way to support our work by contributing appreciated assets without incurring capital gains taxes.

Shares Held in an Account

You will need to instruct your broker or banker about your wish to give securities to Accion. Specify the type of stock, the number of shares that you are donating, and the date by which the gift should be transferred. In order for your broker or banker to transfer the securities electronically, he or she will need the following information:

Accion’s Broker:  RBC Correspondent Services
DTC Number:  0235
Account Name:  Accion International
Account Number:  89401153
Send to the attention of Transfer Dept.
Phone Number: 612.607.8229
Accion’s Tax ID Number:  13-2535763

Because DTC information often does not include the name of the owner of the assets, it is important that you notify Accion of this transaction so that we may properly credit you with your gift.  Please contact Anja Shafer at 617.625.7080 x1225 or via email at ashafer@accion.org or have the individual performing that transfer contact her directly.

Shares Held in Certificate Form

Sign the back of the certificate in the name(s) as they appear on the front. To limit liability, please insert or print “RBC Correspondent Services” as the appointed “Attorney.”

Draft a brief letter authorizing Accion International as the recipient of the transferred security. Please make reference for deposit to account number 89401153. Please sign and date the letter and send to:

Thurston, Sprinter, Miller, Herd & Titak, Inc.
Attn: J. Joseph Bruno, Vice President
9000 Keystone Crossing, Suite 740
Indianapolis, IN 46240

If you have other questions, please contact us at donate@accion.org or 617-625-7080 and press option 3.

Donor Advised Funds

If you have a donor-advised fund, the fund provides you with the opportunity to suggest charitable beneficiaries of the account balance beyond your lifetime. Naming Accion as a legacy charitable beneficiary of your donor-advised fund is simple – just notify your fund administrator of your wishes.
