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 acknowledgment of your contribution by mail.

Each year, your donation helps support:


calls, text, and chats from people needing someone to listen


people reached at suicide prevention workshops and community awareness events


suicide loss survivor visits to peer support groups

“I’m sending out a great big ‘thank you’ to you and your hard-working and dedicated team for all of the noble, life-saving efforts they put forth every single day for someone else’s life. Things don’t always turn out for the best but I’m happy to say that, due to Samaritans, there is one young man who has a chance to turn his life around and live a long, fulfilling, and happy life….because someone was there to listen.”
