Gifts of Stock and Securities

Donating appreciated securities is a win-win for both you and ALS TDI! You will receive full market value of the stock as a charitable deduction, and avoid a capital gain tax.

You may donate securities to ALS TDI by notifying your broker that you wish to transfer them to the ALS Therapy Development Institute. This is called a DTC transfer. To ensure you are properly credited and acknowledged for the gift, you or your broker must advise ALS TDI of the gift by sending a letter to:

Bruce Hain
300 Technology Square
Suite 400
Cambridge, MA 02139

The letter should include the following information:

  • Name of the donor
  • Address
  • Name of the person the donation is in honor of
  • Type of stock and number of shares given
  • Date the gift was made
  • Mean market value of gift on the day it was given, if known

ALS TDI has an account with:

Merrill Lynch
Account Name: ALS Therapy Development Fnd.
Account Number: 818-04161
DTC Number: 8862

Gift date: the date the stock arrives in ALS TDI account.

Thank you for your support of the ALS Therapy Development Institute. If you have any questions regarding a cash transfer, please call Bruce Hain at 617.441.7200 or email at
