Many donors choose to make a gift with assets other than cash.  The Foundation is happy to accept gifts of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or other assets: some donors may accrue tax advantages for donating appreciated securities.

Instructions for Electronic Transfer of Marketable Securities such as Stocks, Bonds, and Mutual Funds

Depository Trust Company (DTC) is a central securities repository where marketable securities are exchanged. The DTC is a member of the Federal Reserve System.

Before initiating a DTC transfer, please inform the CU Foundation (preferably by email) and its broker of:

  • A description of the donated security
  • Number of shares
  • Donor name
  • Gift purpose/fund name and number
  • Your CU Foundation development officer’s name.

This information greatly increases the efficiency of processing each gift. NOTE: Without the donor name, receipts cannot be created. Without the gift purpose, funds cannot be distributed to CU.
