Electronic Transfer: The most common method of gifting securities to ASHA involves your broker electronically transferring shares. Shares can be transferred to ASHA via Charles Schwab. ASHA’s account number is 4973-9917 and our DTC number is 0164. Typically a letter of instruction—signed by the account owner—is the only required documentation needed. The letter of instruction should include ASHA’s DTC number and account number. If you have questions, please contact Lynn Barclay at 919-361-3125.
Physical Transfer: You can forward your stock certificate(s) directly to ASHA. Each stock certificate requires a stock power form. The stock powers should be signed and the signature guaranteed by your local bank or broker. Mail the stock powers, along with a letter indicating your intent to make a gift, to ASHA, PO Box 13827, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709. Under separate cover, send the stock certificate(s) to the same address. For additional protection, we recommend that you send the certificate(s) via registered mail.
Many of our supporters make charitable gifts by naming ASHA as a beneficiary in their wills. The federal government encourages these gifts—or bequests—by allowing an unlimited estate tax charitable deduction. There are three different types of bequests:
- Specific Bequest: You designate a specific dollar amount, specific percentage, or specific property to ASHA.
- Residual Bequest: Your estate will pay all debts, taxes, expenses, and specific bequests. The remaining amount will be transferred to ASHA.
- Contingent Bequest: You can ask that ASHA receive all or a portion of your estate only under certain circumstances. For example, you can name ASHA as a beneficiary of your estate only if there are no surviving close family members. Childless couples sometimes provide for the entire estate to go to the surviving spouse, or if the spouse does not survive, to ASHA.
- Gift of Life Insurance: Some supporters donate life insurance policies that were purchased years ago to provide for children or other family members and are no longer needed.
If you have already made a plan to give to ASHA in your will or estate plan, please contact us. We realize that with your special gift, you consider us to be part of your family, and we want to do our best to keep you informed as to how your gift will be used and to give you the opportunity to tell us of your wishes.
