The Challenge

Three billion people

Your support will help us achieve a financially inclusive world.

Three billion people live in or near poverty. They are left out of, or poorly served by, the world’s financial system. Without access to financial tools, like savings, credit, and insurance, their ability to manage their lives, weather shocks and seize opportunities is limited.


Join us to create a world with economic opportunity for all.

With safe, high-quality, affordable and accessible financial services, people can improve their own lives, as well as those of family members, employees and neighbors in critical ways—better nutrition, regular schooling, or simply a roof that doesn't leak.

Remembering Accion with a bequest from your estate will help sustain and strengthen Accion for years to come. You can make a bequest to Accion by including language in your will or living trust, leaving a portion of your estate to Accion or designating Accion as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy. For more information, please call Leslie Puth at 646-833-4541 or email at


Accion welcomes tax-deductible contributions in the form of securities. This is a particularly powerful way to support our work by contributing appreciated assets without incurring capital gains taxes.

Shares Held in an Account

You will need to instruct your broker or banker about your wish to give securities to Accion. Specify the type of stock, the number of shares that you are donating, and the date by which the gift should be transferred. In order for your broker or banker to transfer the securities electronically, he or she will need the following information:

Accion’s Broker: JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A.
DTC Number: 902
Credit Account Number: P72500
Account Name: Accion International
Account Number: Q86236009
Accion’s Tax ID Number: 13-2535763

Because DTC information often does not include the name of the owner of the assets, it is important that you notify Accion of this transaction so that we may properly credit you with your gift. Please contact Erika Eurkus at 617.616.1559 or via email at or have the individual performing that transfer contact her directly.
