Gifts of Stock
Why Make a Gift of Stock?
Gifts of securities remain a popular option for many of our donors who wish to make a generous gift to the Atlanta History Center while reducing their tax liability.
How Do I Make a Gift of Stock?
The majority of stock gifts are made through a simple electronic transfer. Your broker may transfer securities to the following account held by the Atlanta History Center:
SunTrust Bank, Inc.
Please have your broker specify that the transfer is to be a charitable contribution to the Atlanta Historical Society, Inc. (or Atlanta History Center), Federal Tax ID # 58-0566162. Your instructions should include the issuer of the stock, either the number of shares or the estimated gift value, and the intended gift purpose (Membership, Swan House Ball, Capital Campaign, etc.).
In order to ensure proper crediting and acknowledgement of your gift, please call and/or send a copy of your instructions to:
Atlanta History Center Development Office
Julie Hiland, Senior Manager of Donor Services
For further information, please contact our offices at 404.814.4109.
Thank you for your support of the Atlanta History Center.
