Another Hand Up for Survivors

– Donate By Check

If you would like to mail your donation to Mission, address it to PO Box 566, Southport, CT. 06890. Or please download and complete our Donation Form.

For more information, please email Jeff Keith at Thank you on behalf of the thousands of cancer survivors that we serve.

– Donate Stock

Your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock or securities via a direct transfer to Connecticut Challenge, d/b/a Mission. Stocks that have increased greatly in value, particularly those producing a low yield, are the best to donate because giving a stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide a greater tax benefit to you 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 by not incurring brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.

Even if it is a stock you wish to keep in your portfolio, by donating the stock and using cash to buy the same stock through your broker, you will have received the same income tax deduction but will have a new, higher basis in the stock.

If you would like to make a gift of stock to Mission, please note the following information:

Brokerage House: UBS Financial Services
Account Name: Connecticut Challenge, d/b/a Mission
Account Number: UN5285124
Financial Advisor: Chris Gachi
Telephone number: 203.291.1044
DTC Number: 0221

Please notify Jeff Keith at or 203.418.4105 prior to making your stock transfer so we can ensure smooth processing of your gift and promptly provide information regarding your tax deductions.

For more information, please contact Jeff Keith at or 203.418.4105.

Thank you, on behalf of all who battle cancer.
