Yellow Brick House provides cards and letters stating that a donation has been received and from whom.
Gifts of Stock:

When you donate and transfer your shares directly to Yellow Brick House, you will receive a charitable receipt for the value of your shares without being taxed for the capital gains. You’ll also be in a position to significantly help Yellow Brick House efforts.
Gifts of Cash through a Will:
The most common type of planned gift is a bequest made in a will.
Gifts of Other Assets:
These include real estate, jewelry and other valuables that can be donated either through your will or while you are alive.
Gifts of Life Insurance:
