Stock Gifts


Support Openlands with a Gift of Stock

Gifts of publicly traded securities that have appreciated in value allow you to avoid capital gains taxes while also receiving a tax deduction for your gift.* Openlands benefits by selling the stock without paying taxes on the gain, and you benefit from making a contribution that would be larger than what you might have been able to donate in cash. You can specify which area of Openlands you would like the proceeds to support or have them contributed to the annual fund.

If you would like to give a stock gift to Openlands, please have your financial adviser transfer securities to:

Brokerage: National Financial Services
DTC Number: 0226
Recipient Account Number: GER011541
Reference: (Name of donor/purpose)

Please notify us by emailing or send us a letter in advance of any stock transfers so that proper acknowledgment may be made. Please include the name of the contributor, the name of the stock being transferred, and the number of shares. Our mailing address is:

Development Office
25 East Washington Street, Suite 1650
Chicago, IL 60602

*Openlands is a 501(c)(3) organization. Contributions are deductible as allowed by law. Please speak with your financial adviser about the deductibility of your gift.
