Your gift of stocks can save lives.

Reasons to consider donating appreciated stocks

Gifting stock is a simple and powerful way to support the lifesaving work that Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams are doing every day. It also offers you a number of financial benefits:

  • You can easily donate appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds
  • The total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible
  • There is no obligation to pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciation

Note: Individual situations vary so donors should consult their advisors

If you have any questions about the two-step process for stock donations below, contact Donor Services at 646-215-7137.

Instructions: How to make a stock donation

Contact the institution where your stocks are held and let them know you’d like to transfer the shares to the Doctors Without Borders account at Morgan Stanley. You may need the following codes:

DTC # 0015

Account # 235-070862-111

Should you require it, MSF’s Employer Identification Number (EIN)/Federal Tax Identification Number (TIN) is 13-3433452.

Interested in making a gift of stocks, mutual funds, or bonds in the form of a physical certificate? These types of donations may be handled a little differently. Contact Donor Services at 646-215-7137 and they can quickly guide you through the process.

If you or your broker have any technical questions regarding the transfer, contact our account manager at Morgan Stanley, Paul Azzaretto, at 212.503.1181.
