Donor-advised funds, or charitable giving accounts, are a powerful way to provide much-needed funds to continue the fight to conserve the wildlife, water, and wild places of Tennessee. Gifts from donor-advised funds can make an incredible impact on the stability and scope of work that Tennessee Wildlife Federation pursues on a daily basis.

Simply contact your donor-advised funds’ account manager and initiate a gift in any amount to:

Donate Stock

Be a leader in the conservation movement

A gift of appreciated securities like stocks, bonds, and mutual funds will support our mission to lead the conservation, sound management, and wise use of Tennessee’s wildlife and great outdoors.

When you transfer ownership of securities to Tennessee Wildlife Federation, you will receive a charitable deduction for the full market value and incur no capital gains tax, subject to IRS deductible limitations.

The process is simple. Provide your financial advisor or brokerage firm with the following information to make an electronic delivery through Depository Trust Company (DTC).

DTC Number: 0725
Account Name: Tennessee Wildlife Federation
Account Number: 29470632

We encourage you to alert us in advance with the details of your appreciated gift so we can properly acknowledge your donation. Electronic security transfers do not necessarily provide us with your information.

These types of gifts are fulfilled after your life, so they cost you nothing now.
