Give By Check or Stock

If you'd prefer donating by check, please make your check is made payable to Operation Broken Silence and mailed to our official P.O. Box: Operation Broken Silence, P.O. Box 770900, Memphis, TN, 38177-0900. 

For stock held in brokerage accounts, your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to Operation Broken Silence. Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide better tax benefits than giving cash. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save on brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.

Please download the Stock Transfer Form, follow instructions to formalize and execute your charitable gift, and be sure to email the completed information on page 2 to the contact provided on the form. These steps will inform Operation Broken Silence of the proposed donation and ensure that you receive a receipt of your gift for your tax records.


Since 2017 ends on a Sunday this year, we encourage you to ensure any stock and investment gifts you make are completed by Friday, December 29.
