American Rivers Stock Transfer Instructions

Donating stock to American Rivers is a wonderful way to help our conservation mission. One attraction of donating appreciated securities, like stock, is that the tax savings enable you to make a gift at less cost than if you were to donate the equivalent amount in cash outright.

Donating stock electronically is usually done through your broker. Most brokerage firms will require a letter of intent from you to request the transfer. When doing so you can provide the following account information to them or simply have them contact Corey Christy or call 1-877-347-7550 for the information.
