You can also donate to ADAF by sending a check to:


1617 Third Avenue, #28610

New York, NY 10128

The entire amount of your tax-deductible contribution will go towards the support of the African Dream Academy, located in Monrovia, Liberia, and will help make the dreams of a better future possible for hundreds of African children.


There is a potential tax advantage to donating appreciated stock to African Dream Academy, instead of cash. If you have held the stock for more than one year, and if you itemize deductions, you are entitled to a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying capital gains taxes on the appreciation. Please speak with your tax advisor about this potential benefit.

Depository Trust Company (DTC) Transfer is the best method. This transfer is quick, smooth, and does not require the paperwork necessary for stocks received in physical form.

  1. Merrill Lynch DTC number:  8862 

  2. ADA’s Account Number at Merrill Lynch is 850-03009
