Making a Gift of Securities
You may ask your broker to transfer the shares electronically from your account to the College’s gift account at Alex.Brown (A Division of Raymond James), Baltimore, MD:
- Washington College (WC) Federal tax ID # 52-059-1691
- WC’s gift account # at Alex. Brown: 600FC425
- DTC # 725
To ensure proper crediting of this gift without delay, you MUST contact the Washington College Advancement Office with the following information:
(1) the donor’s name, (2) the name of the stock(s), (3) the number of shares to be transferred, and (4) intended gift purpose BEFORE transferring the stock.
Important to note:
- A gift transaction is complete only when the stock is received in Washington College’s account—not when you give your broker instructions to make the gift. You’ll want to make sure the transfer is completed by your intended deadline.
- For your protection, if you decide to mail physical stock certificates, please call our office for further instructions.
- The phone number at Alex.Brown is (410)525-6230.
Thank you for your generosity to Washington College!
