Our Policy for Stock Donations
Embrace Relief does not employ professional portfolio managers, so stock donations will be liquidated upon receipt in order to avoid risks of stock depreciation.This immediate liquation is not meant to offend donors, but to demonstrate our desire to appreciate the full value of their donation.
Because of our immediate liquidation policy, we prefer to accept publicly traded stocks rather than stock in a privately traded company.
There is no minimum to donate stock.
Stock donations will be considered to be an unrestricted donation for Embrace Relief to use in funding different humanitarian projects at its discretion. It is the responsibility of the donor to clearly specify if they desire the donation to fund a specific project.
Our account will keep at minimum the necessary funds to allow for donations and sales of stock. Embrace Relief will be responsible for maintaining this account.
When donating stock to Embrace Relief, donors will have their brokers transfer stock using the information on our account provided above.
