Donate Stocks, Bonds, or Mutual Funds

Donating stocks, bonds, and mutual funds can be a significant way support the Legacy of Hope campaign. You can also donate the interest on a CD, IRA, charitable trust or money market account. Donating these items is easy, and you may avoid capital gains taxes.

You need only consult your financial advisor. He or she will need the following information in order to wire the shares to Memphis Union Mission's account:
Brokerage Firm: Fidelity Investments
DTC Number: 0226
Account Number: Z72783412

Note: the first character in the account number is the letter "Z".

Please notify us if you plan to wire shares to Memphis Union Mission.
That way, we will know when to expect the transfer and may send you a receipt for tax purposes.
In most cases, you will receive greater tax benefits by wiring your shares to our account, rather than selling them and sending the proceeds to the Mission. See your tax attorney for details.

Remember or Honor Someone Special

Your gift in memory or in honor of a loved one, friend, or special occasion is a thoughtful way to support the Legacy of Hope campaign.

When you give a memorial or a gift to honor a loved one, a card will be mailed promptly to the bereaved family or the person being honored, telling them of your gift.

When you provide a tribute gift, please supply us with the name and address of the person to whom you want us to send the card.

Host an Event at Your Home or Business

One way to support the campaign would be to host a simple informational meeting at your home or business so that your friends and associates can learn more. This could be an evening coffee and dessert meeting or a light breakfast meeting.

We wouldn’t make a direct ask at these events; although, we would want to follow up with those who indicate an interest in the campaign.

Arrange a Tour

Another way to support the campaign would be to arrange for your friends and associates to take a tour of the Mission to see the construction progress and tour the current emergency shelter.

We wouldn’t make a direct ask at these tours; although, we would want to follow up with those who indicate an interest in the campaign.
