Gift of Stock

Thank you for your interest in making a charitable gift to the Clinical Immunology Society (CIS) Foundation in the form of a Stock Transfer. Donating appreciated securities often allows donors to make a bigger philanthropic impact and to receive greater tax advantages than donating cash or selling the stock and donating the proceeds. By donating appreciated securities, you bypass capital gains tax and may deduct the fair market value of your gift.

To make a donation of stock to CIS (tax ID# 52-1469030), please note the following:

  • Brokerage House: Merrill Lynch
  • Account Name: Clinical Immunology Society – Foundation Acct
  • DTC Number: 8862
  • Reference: Donor Name (Including your name will ensure the gift is properly acknowledged.)
