Ways to Donate

Money  we give away reflects the change

we want to see in the world. 

Through its quarter-century history, SCI's donors have saved

and changed lives with simple solar thermal cooking technology. 


Donate Stocks and Securities  

Making a gift of stock is a simple and powerful way to support the work of Solar Cookers International. Some donors are surprised to learn how easy it is to donate shares of stock. Simply authorize your broker to transfer your shares using the information below:

Often a mutual fund company will require that an account be established in the name of the donation recipient.  Involving SCI in the establishment of such an account will help ensure SCI receives the funds you wish to donate in a timely manner.  Please note that mutual fund donations require a longer processing time.  

You may designate SCI as a beneficiary for each certificate of deposit (CD).  As CDs mature, the beneficiary designation will need to be resubmitted, or it can be set up to automatically roll over to a new CD and automatically retain the beneficiary.  


Increase Your Impact through Employers’ Matching Charitable Gifts  

Many employers will increase the value of a contribution by matching your charitable gift to SCI. Please consider selecting SCI in a matching gift program if it is available to you. 


Participate in the Combined Federal Campaign   

Are you a U.S. federal employee? SCI is a participating organization in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC).
