Gifts of Securities

By donating appreciated securities to SMCI, you can avoid the capital gains tax you would have paid if you had sold the asset. If you have owned the securities for longer than one year, you will also receive an income tax charitable deduction for their full fair-market value.

To make a gift of appreciated securities to SMCI, have your broker/financial consultant contact Charles Schwab at 800-435-4000 and provide the following information:

Beneficiary: SMCI (Solve ME/CFS Initiative)
DTC #:  0164

Solve ME/CFS Initiative
5455 Wilshire Boulevard, Suite 1903
Los Angeles, CA  90036

We want to make your gift-giving as smooth and seamless as possible. Please contact Jody Short, SMCI’s Director of Development when you intend to transfer securities and provide her with your name, the name of the stock being transferred and the number of shares. Jody can be reached via email at or by telephone at (704) 364-0016 ext. 207.
