E*TRADE Introduces Convenient Way To Make Charitable Contributions

Stocks in this article: ETFC

E*TRADE today announced the launch of a voluntary program that enables customers to donate small or unwanted shareholdings to a charitable organization, ShareGift USA.

“We’re giving customers a practical way to become part of the collective giving effort this holiday season, or anytime throughout the year,” said Michael Curcio, President, E*TRADE Securities. “Now customers can conveniently put found money to good use by donating shareholdings to charity.”

Through a new program with ShareGift USA, available on etrade.com, E*TRADE customers now have a simple and cost-effective way to donate small or unwanted shareholdings, that may cost more to sell than the shares are worth, to organizations that support education, health, human services, public society, the environment, and international causes.

At the customer’s request, E*TRADE will transfer shares to ShareGift USA. ShareGift USA will then aggregate donations, sell them and give the proceeds to pre-determined charitable organizations with demonstrated track records and high efficiency ratings. Each donation is followed by a receipt from ShareGift USA, indicating the value of the contribution, which can be used for tax purposes. Participation in this collective giving effort is voluntary, and ShareGift USA is able to accept as little as just a few shares or even fractional shares.

E*TRADE is committed to making a positive impact by supporting local and national non-profit organizations with employee volunteer hours and corporate contributions. ShareGift USA’s mission is to use “found money” to facilitate charitable giving, and through this new program, E*TRADE now offers its customers a convenient and easy way to contribute.
