Making a Donation of Stock or Other Securities to Support GiveWell

Thanks for your interest in donating securities to GiveWell’s unrestricted fund!

We will use your donation to support our work of finding outstanding giving opportunities and sharing the full details of our analysis to help donors decide where to give. We may use these funds to either support our operating expenses (most likely) or grant out to charities at our discretion.

Securities donations are non-refundable in most cases, and we sell them for USD shortly after we receive them. If you have any questions about how to donate securities, please email us at before making your donation.

Please complete our securities donation form below prior to sending your securities to our E*Trade account. Doing so will:

  • enable us to match your contact information with securities we receive and send you a receipt; and
  • reduce the administrative cost associated with processing your donation.

Donations received without an accompanying donation form submission will be treated as anonymous donations to our unrestricted fund.

After completing this form, please use GiveWell's E*Trade account information below to make a third party transfer. Please contact your brokerage firm or wherever your funds are held for more information on how to make a transfer.

Additional Notes

  • Unfortunately, we are not listed on E*Trade's donate-to-charity feature. The best way to make a transfer within E*Trade is to call 1 (800) 387-2331 and request a third party transfer. The E*Trade representative can then make the transfer on your behalf.
  • If you are planning to donate Vanguard mutual funds, please consider making the donation via GiveWell's Vanguard donor-advised fund instead.
