Donating stock (securities) to the ABTA is a way to help those impacted by a brain tumor diagnosis while receiving potential tax benefits.
To make a stock donation:
1. Inform your broker that you would like to make a stock gift to the American Brain Tumor Association
2. Fill out and return our Stock Transfer Form and e-mail, fax, or mail the completed form to:
American Brain Tumor Association
Attn: Phil Samuels, Director of Accounting
8550 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., Suite 550
Chicago, IL 60631-3225
3. Notify the ABTA in advance of stock transfers so that we can instruct our broker to accept delivery of your gift and acknowledge it properly for income tax purposes.
If you have any questions about completing your transfer, contact Phil Samuels at 773-577-8754 or psamuels@ABTA.org.
A payroll deduction is a consistent, easy way for you to help advance the ABTA’s mission. Participating in a payroll deduction through your employer allows you to designate an amount of money to be deducted from your paycheck and donated directly to the ABTA.
Ask your human resources department if your company offers a payroll deduction option for charitable support. If the ABTA is not listed in the charity options at your workplace, you can always write us in. Just include the following information on your pledge form: American Brain Tumor Association, EIN #23-7286648.
Combined Federal Campaign for Government Employees
The ABTA is part of the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), a payroll deduction program specifically for government employees. If you are a government employee, the human resources department or CFC representative at your workplace can provide enrollment information.
- Choose the ABTA (CFC#11033) on the CFC form
- Check the box to release your giving information to the ABTA so that we acknowledge your support and stay in touch.
With matching gifts, you can sometimes double or even triple your donation! Many employers offer matching gift programs. To find out if your company has a matching gift program, please enter your employer’s name below.
If your employer is not listed, talk with your company’s human resources department.
