Samaritans welcomes gifts of appreciated stock. We are grateful for your generosity and commitment to suicide prevention, and we look forward to working with you to complete your stock gift.

How to Make a Gift of Stock

  • To make a gift of stock to Samaritans, please notify us of your intended gift so that we can monitor the transfer. This also helps us to make sure the funds are correctly allocated. Please notify Janet Lawn, Chief Development Officer, at (617) 536-2460 x5223.
  • We will then give you the account number for the Samaritans Vanguard brokerage account. After you’ve notified us, have your broker transfer the securities electronically to the Samaritans brokerage account.
  • We will notify you when the gift has been completed, and you will receive a written acknowledgement of your contribution by mail.

Each year, your donation helps support:

calls, texts, and chats from people needing someone to listen
people reached at suicide prevention workshops and community awareness events
visits to our peer-led support groups for survivors of suicide loss
