Gifts of Stock

Gifts of appreciated securities, stocks, and bonds provide considerable tax advantages when transferred to DVFS before they are sold. If you have held your securities for more than one year, you may find that your gift will provide a two-fold tax benefit, creating an income tax deduction as well as helping avoid the capital gains tax that would have been due on their sale.

To make a gift of stock, wire transfer your stock to DVFS’ account with Wells Fargo Advisors using the following information:

Wells Fargo Advisors
Acct #: 2431-3516
DTC#: 0141
Wells Fargo representative: Earl Maitland, 215-564-8329

Additionally, please advise Esther Nyaga in our Development Office at 610-640-4150, ext. 2151 with the name of the security, number of shares, and date of gift so that the gift may be properly credited to you.

Matching Gifts - double your impact!

Check this list to see if your employer offers to match gifts; some employers also match gifts made by retirees. Please send matching gift forms to DVFS, Attn: Development, 19 E. Central Ave., Paoli, PA 19301. Matching gifts are counted as a gift from the donor and from the company.

United Way
