Thank you for your interest in support of the American Nurses Foundation. To help you facilitate a gift of stock, please use the following three simple steps:

Step 1: Initiate the Stock Transfer

Securities can be gifted to the American Nurses Foundation in two ways: either via electronic transfer (in which your broker transfers shares using the Foundation’s DTC number) or by physically mailing the paper certificates to the Foundation. Either method is acceptable, but it is necessary for you to contact your broker to initiate the transfer. Download a sample letter here for your use.

Step 2: Send the Securities to the American Nurses Foundation

  • If the shares are held at a securities firm or other brokerage account:
    • Instruct institution where securities are held to transfer the shares to the American Nurses Foundation (ANF) account at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. DTC and Account Numbers are listed below.
    • DTC # 5198
      Account # 5TL-04149

    • Instruct your broker to enter identifying information (i.e. your name and address, phone number, account number, broker information) into the "Text Comment" field of the DTC screen.
    • Your institution may require a written Letter of Authorization (see sample below)
    • If you would like to transfer shares of mutual funds, please contact Mark Randall at (301) 215-4446 or at to make certain that the shares can be accepted.
  • If certificates/shares are in your physical possession:

    • The American Nurses Foundation's account number (#5TL-04149) should be written on the face of the certificate(s).
    • These above named items: Letter of Authorization, Certificate(s), and Stock Power Form (if applicable) should be sent by a tracked mail system for security purposes (i.e. Federal Express, Registered Mail, etc.) to our broker at the following address:
