  • Give Stock

    Donating stock is not only easy, but can also provide you with substantial tax benefits. To transfer stock to Friendship Place, here’s the information your broker will need:

    Fidelity Investments
    Account Number: Z72-512273 (account holder is Friendship Place)
    DTC Number: 0226
    Some brokers also request an address:
    Fidelity Investments
    Attn: OSGTOA Incoming
    P.O. Box 770001
    Cincinnati, OH 45277

    Once you put in the request to your broker, please alert Chris Rutledge, Chief Development Officer, at 202.503.2968. The notification that we receive from our Fidelity account does not tell us who made the donation, so we rely on the donor to let us know.

    Ask your broker to give you the value of the stock in writing at the time of the transfer. In accordance with IRS regulations, our “thank you” letter to you will acknowledge the number of shares and the date on which you transferred them.
