There are several ways to transfer securities to Testicular Cancer Foundation (TCF) : electronic transfer, mailing certificates, or hand delivery.
Please consult your Tax Advisor for details on why transferring stock is the preferred way to donate to a 501c3 organization.
According to Fidelity Investments Website: Fidelity Charitable Website
Dependent upon their adjusted gross income (AGI) and filing status, some top-rate taxpayers now face a 20% capital gains tax rate as well as the new 3.8% Medicare surtax on net investment income. This tax treatment may make donating appreciated securities and complex assets more tax-efficient. However, in any tax year donating long-term appreciated securities to charity (rather than selling the securities first and then donating the after-tax proceeds), can have multiple benefits:
You owe no taxes on the capital gains, so the charities to which you donate receive a larger donation.
You may be eligible to take an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the donated securities — up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income (AGI) for contributions to public charities. (Any amounts in excess of the 30% limit can be carried forward for up to five years.)
The most popular and most efficient way to transfer securities to Testicular Cancer Foundation (TCF) is by electronic transfer.
If your stock is held at a broker, notify the broker that you wish to make a gift of securities to TCF. Your broker will need written authorization from you before they can make the transfer. Be sure to tell them the name of the stock that you want to transfer, the number of shares, and where you would like your gift to be designated when it reaches TCF. A TCF transmittal form (TCF Stock Form) can be used in place of a letter. Please mail or scan a copy of your authorization letter or the stock transmittal form to the following address:

MAILING STOCK CERTIFICATES
If your securities are not held at a broker then you can either mail or hand deliver the certificates directly to TCF offices. If mailing, send your unendorsed certificate(s) and a cover letter (including your name, address, and purpose of the gift) in one envelope. In a second envelope, send a signed, signature guaranteed, stock power. We strongly recommend using registered mail to forward your certificates and stock power. A stock power form can be obtained at your local bank.
Certificates must be given to either Matt Ferstler or Roy Nierdieck at TCF offices. NOTE: Please DO NOT mail endorsed certificates! Once the certificate is endorsed, it is legal tender and can be exchanged by anyone. It is strongly recommended that certificates not be sent to a transfer agent for registering in TCF’s name. This procedure is unnecessary and results in needless delays of the transfer.

Planned giving is finding ways to make charitable gifts now or after your lifetime while enjoying financial benefits for yourself.
Whether you make a gift now or after your lifetime, strategic planning allows you to align your charitable giving with your overall financial and estate plans.
Unlike cash donations, planned gifts are typically made from assets in your estate rather than disposable income, and come to fruition upon your death.
The most common planned gift is a bequest in your will or living trust. Other planned gifts include:
A charitable gift annuity
A charitable remainder trust
A charitable lead trust
An endowment fund
Retirement plan assets
Life insurance policies
Please contact us for more information on Planned Giving.
Workplace giving programs allow your contributions to be deducted directly from your paycheck and with matching gifts programs, companies match donations you make to the charitable organization(s) or your choice. Ask your human resource department whether your company offers this giving opportunity.
We look to partner with a company’s Health and Wellness department, as well. TCF can provide your company or organization with an awareness kit that can be used for a company-wide health fair or other opportunity to speak to employees about men’s health and the importance of self-examination.
For more information or to inquire about TCF coming and speaking at your company please call 855.390.8231 or email us at info@TCancer.org.
