Credit Card Gifts: To make a gift via your credit card, use this donation form or call (415) 977-5653.
Personal Check Gifts: To make a gift via a personal check, designate Sierra Club Foundation as the payee and mail to the above address. Please be sure to mail it earlier than usual in order to allow for delivery and processing delays. It is important that donations to Sierra Club Foundation are made payable to the correct entity; checks made out to Sierra Club but intended for the Foundation must be returned, which will further delay processing and acknowledgments.
Honorary Gifts: To honor a family member or friend with a gift, visit our Memorial & Commemorative Gifts page or call (415) 977-5653.
Stock Gifts: Before making a stock transfer, use this transfer form so we can identify and acknowledge your gift. Brokerage firms will not share donor information if it is not provided directly from the donor using the transfer form. Without this form, we are unable to identify stock donors and cannot acknowledge your donation. After submitting the form and transferring the stocks, please reach out to our Major Gifts team at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm we have matched your stock transfer to you.
Electronic transfer of stock to:

IRA Qualified Charitable Distributions: To make a gift via an IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution (also referred to as a Charitable IRA Rollover), follow the instructions on this information sheet, which includes a sample letter to your IRA administrator. It is important that checks clearly list the donor name and are made payable to Sierra Club Foundation; checks made out to Sierra Club but intended for the Foundation must be returned, which will further delay processing and acknowledgments. Note that the Sierra Club, as a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, is not eligible to receive IRA charitable rollovers.
Vehicle Donations: To donate a car or other vehicle, visit our partner program website or call (855) 337-4377.
