Stock Donations

IDA is able to accept donations of stock through its brokerage account. In many cases, a stock donation offers donors a double tax benefit, giving them both a charitable deduction and allowing them to avoid tax on any appreciation in value of the donated stock. Stock donations are limited to gifts valued at $5,000 and up at the time of donation.

Please provide the following information to Michelle or the IDA if you will be transferring stock. IDA will need to make arrangements in advance to facilitate the sale and transfer of funds in a timely manner. 

  • Name of donor
  • Donor phone number
  • Donor email
  • Donor’s full mailing address
  • Amount of donation
  • Date of donation

Here's the account information for making a gift of stock to IDA in support of Cairo to the Cloud: 

  • Account Name: International Documentary Association 
  • Wells Fargo Investments  (WellsTrade)     
  • Address: 625 Marquette Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55402     
  • Phone#: 800-872-3377 
  • DTC# ( 4 digits) : 0141
  • Account #: W81872839  

While IDA will do its best to sell and transfer the stock as quickly as possible, due to the unpredictability of the stock market they cannot guarantee that the donation will not lose any value between the time that it is donated and the time it is sold and the funds credited to Cairo to the Cloud. It is also possible for a stock to gain value. In that case, any increase in value will be credited to the project.

Matching Gifts

IDA can process and accept matching gifts from businesses when a donor has made an eligible donation. Each company has their own rules and procedures for processing these donations. Employees or businesses that would like to make eligible gifts should contact the appropriate person at their place of employment for details on how to proceed. After a matching gift has been initiated, please let IDA know that a matching donation will be arriving and ask the company to reference the project title somewhere on the check or accompanying letter.
