A gift of stock is a great way to support GJP and may provide you with tax relief. The information contained within this website is provided for informational purposes only and is not intended to substitute for obtaining accounting, tax, or financial advice from a professional tax planner or financial planner.
We have outlined a series of steps below to help with the transfer. If you have any questions, please contact Ermis Zayas at Ermis@GJP.org or 404-827-0027 ext. 217.
Step 1: Initiate the transfer
There are two ways to contribute securities to Georgia Justice Project. Electronic transfer allows your broker to transfer shares using Georgia Justice Project’s DTC number. Electronic transfer of stock shares is the most secure and expedient delivery process and provides efficient internal control as well as cost savings.
Step 2: Notify us of your intent
Regardless of how you give the stock to GJP, the donor or the transferring broker must provide the following information for audit and acknowledgment purposes:
- Donor’s name and complete address
- Name and number of securities transferred
- Date of the transfer
You may provide a letter, or send an e-mail to communicate this information at the time of transfer to:
