Gifts of Stock

Make a lasting impact with your gift of Stocks, Bonds, or Mutual Funds 


Many of our members have found a gift of securities to be an attractive way to support the station. Long-term appreciated stock that has been owned for more than one year and has increased in value can be donated to help support PBS Western Reserve’s mission. Contact your broker with your intent to make a gift of securities to PBS Western Reserve and advise them to include your name and address on the transaction.  

Your broker will ask for the name of the stock, number of shares and the following information regarding PBS Western Reserve’s brokerage house and account:

Brokerage Account: Merrill Lynch
DTC #: 8862
Account #: 658-04234
Tax ID #34-1123819
Contact: Sam Eddy, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management (800) 288-0297 

Your donation will be equal to what the stock is worth on the date of the gift as opposed to its purchase price.

In addition to making a major impact, your donation of stock may help you enjoy valuable tax savings.
