“I, a retired teacher, was trying to make a stock donation to a smallish local environmental group that does not have a brokerage house, so they had chosen Stock Donator to handle donations for them. I think after this experience they probably will stick with Stock Donator and not get involved with a brokerage house.
I ran into difficulty because of a huge mistake I made AND because of an issue with the brokerage house. The response from a member of the Stock Donator team was above and beyond. He was with me every step of the way and I was tempted to bake cookies and send them to him but he's in LA and I'm in Boston and the shipping charges would be outrageous.”
