Share Your Financial Assets

"TechnoServe has consistently impressed me, both as a volunteer as well as a donor. The organization has a tremendous impact on people around the world, by providing individuals with the tools (rather than just a charitable payment) that they need to lift themselves out of poverty – and remain out of poverty for the long-term."

Justin Heyman, Donor

Make a Donor-Advised Fund Recommendation

You can recommend grants to TechnoServe directly from your donor-advised fund through DAF Direct. Check if your fund's sponsoring organization is participating here.

Make a Gift of Stock

Gifts to TechnoServe in the form of stocks and other appreciated assets may be an especially attractive way for you to make an impact. Why? Because you can avoid paying the capital gains tax by giving the stocks to TechnoServe as a gift.

Make an IRA Distribution

Starting at 70.5 years of age, your IRA’s required distribution can also be paid directly to TechnoServe, which can serve as a non-taxable withdrawal for you and a contribution to us.

Depository Transfer Check (DTC) is TechnoServe’s preferred transfer method. Stocks and IRA Distributions can be sent via DTC #8862. Both DTC and physical certificates should be registered in the name of TechnoServe, Inc. For more information on DTCs, feel free to contact TechnoServe’s Merrill Lynch financial advisor, Christopher Smiles at 203.356.8803.

Transfers typically will not include your name. If you are making a gift through TechnoServe’s DTC, please let us know by contacting Katie Seigle at kseigle@tns.org or 202-650-5717.


Make a Legacy Gift

"Giving to TechnoServe is a way to help resilient people whom we might never meet personally, and thereby contribute to some small degree in the ongoing effort to improve the family of humankind." 

Lynn and Martin Bloom, Ed Bullard Legacy Society Members

Join the Ed Bullard Legacy Society

Many people leave a gift to charity in their estate plans because they care about the causes that are important in their lives. Putting a legacy gift in place is easy, and it is an impactful way to continue to help enterprising women and men achieve sustained prosperity.

Individuals who make a legacy gift to TechnoServe are welcomed as members of the Ed Bullard Legacy Society, named in honor of our founder. Ed believed strongly in providing a sound financial future for the organization and for the people we serve.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss how a legacy gift will make a meaningful impact in the lives of millions and ensure we are able to strengthen and grow this remarkable organization well into the future.

Learn more about Ed Bullard Society planned giving options and contact Andrea Stepanski, Manager Major Gifts, at astepanski@tns.org or 202-719-1331 for more information.
