Give Stock

Donating stock is not only easy, but can also provide substantial tax benefits to you. To transfer stock to Friendship Place, here’s the information that 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 in writing the value of the stock 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.

Give at Work

Donate through United Way using our campaign code# 8299 or through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) using code #37588.

Another option to consider — a matching gift program through your workplace — which can multiply, sometimes even double, the value of your contribution!  Contact your employer’s Human Resources Department to find out if your company offers a matching gifts program.
