The gift transfer process will begin immediately upon receipt of your signed Letter of Instruction (LOI). For stocks and mutual funds held at most participating investment firms, faxing your LOI will allow for expedited handling of your gift, where most gifts are completed within 24 hours of receipt of the LOI.

If your firm is not listed, you may still use our service to process your stock gift via a DTC transfer. You will be required to enter your investment firm’s contact information. Your Letter of Instruction (LOI) may require notarized certification; check with your investment firm for its requirements. If your mutual fund is not held at a participating firm listed above, please contact our development office for instructions on making an offline gift.

You can make your donations in honor of or in memory of a special someone. You can also create a band through banding together to remember or celebrate someone you love.

Where does my money go?

Help moms and babies in your community. Donate your car, truck, van, bus, boat or motorcycle to the March of Dimes and keep us on the road to finding out what causes premature birth and birth defects. Fast, free towing from all 50 states! To ensure that your donated vehicle is headed in the right direction, follow these tips:

  • Donate only to charities with a name you know and trust. Be careful of confusing legitimate charities with others that have soundalike names.
  • Check that the charity receives at least 70% of the proceeds from donated vehicles.
  • Confirm that your vehicle will be handled by licensed and insured tow companies and dealers.
  • Limit your liability: Sign the title directly to the charity or their agent. Never leave the title blank!
  • Ask how the funds will be spent.  The March of Dimes Foundation spends 76% of activities on research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies lives.
