HelpMeSee gratefully accepts securities and mutual funds as charitable donations. By donating appreciated securities, you may be able to avoid capital gains taxes and make a larger gift at a lower original cost. As a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization, HelpMeSee can sell stocks or mutual funds without tax consequences.
If your financial services provider holds securities, including mutual funds, in your account, you can have the securities electronically transferred to HelpMeSee:
DTC #: 5198
Account number: 852-03661
Account Title: Help Me See, Inc.
Your gift is complete on the date that the stock is transferred. The value of your gift will be the mean value of the stock on the day it is transferred. This is the most efficient way to transfer securities.
If you have stock certificates that you would like to donate, please send the unendorsed certificate and a signed stock power, available from your financial services provider, in separate envelopes to:
Attn: Accounts/Securities Donations
20 West 36th Street, Floor 4
New York, NY 10018-8005
Your gift will be complete on the date of the postmark of the second envelope. It is HelpMeSee policy to sell all gifts of securities as soon as HelpMeSee is notified of the transfer by our stockbroker. The proceeds are then applied to HelpMeSee programs and related activities.
If you need assistance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-844-HelpMeSee (1.844.435.7637).
