Making your gift of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds

Making a gift of appreciated stock, bonds, or mutual funds is easy with the help of your tax or financial professional.

As always, we recommend that you consult your tax or financial professional for advice before making charitable donations. The first step in making a gift of this type is to provide your broker with the following transfer information: 

DTC code: 0075   
Account number: 1023-7478   
Account name: Best Friends Animal Society   
Best Friends EIN: 23-7147797   
Receiving institution: LPL Financial, LLC*   
*LPL Financial is a financial intermediary whose name might appear in any transactions.

You can also download our stock transfer form to get started. 

When you make a gift to Best Friends by transferring stocks into our account, we do not receive any information that identifies you as the donor. To ensure that you receive a proper tax acknowledgement of your gift, please let us know.
