The procedure to donate stocks start with requesting your stock broker/handler to start the process:
1. Fill out the Partial transfer form. You need the following information for the form.
a. DTC number: 0188.
b. Beneficiary: Imamia Medics International
c. Account number 489974014
3. Once the transfer is initiated you may use the current market value of your donation for your tax deductions. Please check with your accountant for any limitations therein. There are no liability on you for any capital gains accrued due to the appreciation of stocks in value.
IMI directs at least 90% of your donations directly to program activities. Out of respect for religious obligations, 100% of your khums, sadaqa, zakat and funds for victims of violence (shuhada) are spent without retaining any perecentages for opperational expenses.
Please note: While IMI maintains a low ratio between administration and project specific work, opperating costs are integral for any non-profit's smooth and efficient work in all arenas. These funds go towards work like ensuring compliance with US sanctions particularly given the international scope of our activities or even simply ensuring manpower to keep detailed accounts and issue timely receipts.
