How to give stock gifts to cafe 1040

Read this short story from our founder on how giving stock can help you and Cafe 1040 at the same time.

  1. What you can give:

    1. Any stock with a stock symbol

    2. Any ETF with a stock symbol

    3. Any shares of a mutual fund with a stock symbol (whole shares only)

  2. Brokerage type:

    1. If you have a full-service broker, notify them of your intent to transfer stock to Cafe 1040, indicating the stock and the number of shares you would like to give.

    2. If you have a self-service brokerage other than TD Ameritrade, locate the form used for transferring stock, often entitled “Transfer Out” form.  Call your brokerage’s customer service if needed, as requirements vary from one brokerage to another.

    3. If you have a TD Ameritrade self-service account:

      1. Log into your account

      2. Locate the “Internal Transfer Form”  

      3. Download, complete (see instructions below) and sign the form (our signature is not required)

      4. Scan the completed form, or take a picture of it with your phone.

      5. Upload the form via the TD Ameritrade portal only.

  3. Instructions for the Broker or for Completing the Form Yourself:
