Stock and Security Donations

The Bay Area Funeral Consumers Association (BAFCA) is pleased to accept donations of stock, bonds, and other types of equity bought and sold through Fidelity Investments.

All the transactions are completed between your brokerage firm (e.g., Charles Schwab, Ameritrade, or others) and our brokerage firm, Fidelity Investments. We do not see or hear of your donation until Fidelity notifies us those shares have been transferred (donated) to our Fidelity account.

Transferring shares of, say, ABC, Inc. can be done easily by filling out a charitable donation form. The form is one page in length and has all the information your brokerage firm needs to complete the transfer. 

For security purposes, you may ask your brokerage firm to verify the data concerning our account, so that you can be assured that the shares are not being sent to a fictitious account or that a scam is being perpetrated on you.

If you have any questions, concerns or would like to speak to someone about a possible donation, please contact us; we will return your call as soon as possible.
