Gifts of Stock

Gifts of appreciated stock, bonds or mutual funds are a smart and simple way to support The Nature Conservancy. These gifts allow you to give more with less because you may be able to both take an income tax deduction and avoid capital gains taxes.

You can even use appreciated securities to set up an annuity or unitrust to receive lifetime payments that equal or surpass current dividends. And best of all, your gift will help nature.

If you plan to donate stock to TNC, please help us more efficiently process your gift by completing this form to let us know your gift is coming. The form does NOT initiate the transfer of your stock; you will still need to initiate the transfer either electronically through your broker or by mailing the paper certificates directly. Transfer instructions are below the form.

If you would like to set up a life income gift using stocks or mutual funds, please first reach out to a Gift Planning specialist at (833) 336-PLAN or [email protected] before making the transfer.
