Stock gifts

Stock gifts might seem unconventional, but they are a great way to partner with TCRP! One of the most advantageous ways to contribute to the Texas Civil Rights Project is with a gift of stock, or other securities, such as bonds or mutual funds. The total value of your gift is tax-deductible provided it has been held for at least one year, and there is no obligation to pay any capital gains tax on the appreciated value. Upon receipt we will notify you of the market value of your gift. The gift is fully deductible as of the date it arrives in our account.

 

Please contact us before you make any stock gifts by e-mailing development@texascivilrightsproject.org or calling (512) 474-5073 ext. 102

 

The following is the information necessary to transfer stock to our account:

 

Electronic Transfer
If your stock is held in brokerage account, your broker can transfer your gift electronically. They will need the following information:

 

Pershing LLC
DTC #0443
Comerica Securities, Inc.
FBO: P1R218802

 

When your stock is received in the TCRP account, unfortunately, we do not receive any information that identifies you as the donor. Therefore we kindly ask that you please alert us in advance about the stock and number of shares you plan to donate. You may notify us by e-mailing development@texascivilrightsproject.org or calling (512) 474-5073 ext. 102. Be sure to provide your name and address so that we may acknowledge your gift with a receipt.

 

Physical Delivery
If you hold the security’s paper certificate, you may mail or hand deliver it without any endorsement or assignment to:

 

Texas Civil Rights Project
Attn: Stephanie Schweitzer Garza
1405 Montopolis Drive
Austin, Texas 78741

 

In a separate envelope, mail or deliver a signed stock power form for each gift — except for your signature, the stock power form should be blank — and a letter stating your intention to make a gift of the securities to TCRP.

 

You can request a stock power form by emailing us at development@texascivilrightsproject.org or calling (512) 474-5073 ext. 102. You can also obtain a stock power form from your bank or broker. Please sign the stock power exactly as your name appears on the stock certificate.

 

We recommend that you consult with your attorney or tax advisor for the various tax benefits and restrictions that may apply to your specific situation. We are available to you and your advisors to answer questions or help arrange a planned gift to TCRP.

TCRP’s efforts to challenge the injustices that are all too common in our state have sparked a backlash. Join our Fight for Rights Campaign and defend our work today.
