Gifts of Stock and Securities
Earthwatch gratefully accepts gifts in the form of stocks and securities. This can be a simple way to make a lasting gift to Earthwatch.
The preferred procedure for making a gift of non-cash property, is for you to send your broker written instructions, with a copy to Cindy Zilch, Acting Chief Development Officer, Earthwatch Institute. On your letter to your broker include the following electronic transfer information:
Stock Transfer Instructions
45 Williams St.
Suite 100 Wellesley MA 02181
Account number: 78604065
Name on Account: Earthwatch Institute Inc.
Name of broker: Ronald L. Shaw
We request you contact Earthwatch Institute within 24 hours to tell us the purpose of your gift, as stock transfers are often completed without the donor's identity included. By contacting us with the name of the stock and the number of shares donated, it will assist in locating your gift quickly.
If you have questions about these instructions or would like to discuss making a gift of stock, please call Cindy Zilch at (800) 776-0188 (extension 213), or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for considering a gift of securities.
