Donate Stock or Property

Thank you for your interest in making a gift of stock or property to Union Rescue Mission. Your generosity will provide a lasting source of support to help men, women, and children who are experiencing homelessness.


We gladly accept gifts of real estate, personal property, or other assets. To make a significant gift, please contact Tim Peters at 213-316-2742 or


We gladly accept gifts of appreciated stocks. Donating stock directly to URM can provide 50% more funds than simply selling your shares and contributing the proceeds. There’s no better way to put the full value of your stock to work to provide safe shelter, nourishing meals, and Christ-centered programs to help end the cycle of homelessness. 

It’s easy to make a gift of stock:

  1. Ask your broker to perform an “electronic transfer” of the mutual fund or individual stock shares you wish to donate.
  2. Instruct your broker to transfer the shares to:
    Merrill Lynch
    Account # 7EU-04B81
    DTC 8862
  3. Contact Cindy Nichols at 213-673-4813 or to let us know your gift is on the way. Be sure to provide your contact information, the date of transfer, the name of the stock, and how many shares you are donating. This notification is needed to track the transaction and provide a tax-deductible receipt for your gift.
