For GBP wire transfers, please put your name or the relevant project code as a reference for the payment and send an email to our UK Finance Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org) when you have made a transfer/payment so that they can allocate it correctly.
Please note that offline payments such as checks and wire transfers are manually processed by our staff and can take some time to process. Your wire transfer will be processed by the 5th of the month following the month it was received, and you will receive a receipt if your address is provided.

You can enjoy significant tax advantages when you transfer securities, instead of donating cash, to GlobalGiving:
If you held the stock for at least one year, you receive a tax deduction for the full value of the stock at the time of donation (not just the amount you paid for the stock).
You avoid paying both capital gains tax and stock sales commissions. As a result, you can give your favorite non-profits larger gifts by donating stock rather than cash.
How to donate appreciated stock
Please let us know the name of your broker and describe the shares you are donating (which company, how many shares, an estimate of the total value). We will give our broker this information so your gift will be recognized when it comes into our account.
Please mail any letters or check donations to: GlobalGiving, 1 Thomas Circle NW, Suite 800, Washington, DC 20005, USA
If you hold the stock certificate, or the stock certificate is held at a bank or trust company, contact us for help with the transfer (202) 232-5784.
If you would like to donate stock that has depreciated in value since you bought it, it may be to your advantage to sell the stock and write a check to GlobalGiving. Often, you can claim a loss and pay less in taxes. As always, however, you should consult a tax advisor about your particular circumstances.
